freeze the aspect ratio of an object

Asked by Rachel Gardner on 2013-08-13

I would like to be able to change the scale of an object, but have the aspect ratio stay the same. In other words, I would like to change the size without changing the way the object looks.

Hello Rachel,

You can either use the "lock" icon on the Select tool's control bar (stays active for all transforms, but doesn't work if you resize only one dimension with a side handle), or press the Ctrl key while resizing (keeps the radio even if you use the side handles).
Details on the manual here: http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/Transforms.html

Regards.

Can you help with this problem?
