Hello CorelDraw peopleI searched around this group and couldn't find this topic, so I hope this is not a repost or in the wrong place.I work with signage and do lots of precise scaling. Sometimes I need to have a specific part of a graphic at a certain size. For instance, the letter "P" must be 500mm high.Obviously the rest of the sign, grouped and/or combined with the "P", need to scale along proportionately.The way I'm currently doing this is quite clumsy - I make a 500mm box and scale the entire group through trial and error untill the matches the 500mm box's height, using guidelines. Or, I can ungroup and break apart everything, note the percentage needed to match the P to the box, then go back and scale up the entire sign by that percentage to get the required result.I'm sure there is a better way of doing this.It would be incredible if Corel allowed you to scale a group of items by adding handles to one of the child elements, and then upon scaling said element, the entire group scales accordingly.
try one of attached (one tested on X5 and second on 2017); select child object - run macro - enter required size
