how to specify line thickness of grouped object

Asked by Yutaro Ishihama on 2011-10-06

Because I do not like a function of the arrow mark addition in the Inkscape, I perfer to using combination of triangle with a line. And , after that, I make these "grouped". Once the objects have been grouped, I think that it is impossible to change the thickness of the line by using control+Shift +M command. When I try to change the size of the grouped object, the line thickness is associatedly changed, which is not convenient for me. Do you know how to change the thickness of the line by using "deformation" (cont+shift+M) commnad? Thanks for your efforts to create this wonderful software.

The thickness (width) of a line is a style attribute of a path, not part of its geometry.

For precise control of the line widths, deactivate the 'Affect:' setting on the controls bar of the select tool to 'Scale stroke width proportionally when scaling object(s), and use the 'Fill & Stroke' dialog (tab 'Stroke style') to adjust the width of selected paths.

Can you help with this problem?
