Hi,

Is there a way of selecting a specific point on a drawing to scale either up or down to?

Here's my example, what I want to do is to scale the shape, using the base point at bottom left up to the top right point at the top of the line. The only option I'm given is to type in a scale factor, which is fine if you know the scale factor, but if you don't then the math has to be done.

Of course the math is simple, find the length of the line and divide it by the height of the shape, the answer is used as the scale factor to project the shape. But is there another way of doing this, maybe?

Scaled up!
