Moving, scaling, and rotating precisely

The 'Measurements' field allows you to accurately move, scale, and rotate with the Select tool.

Precise Moving Using the Select Tool

You can create precise movement operations by explicitly typing, in the 'Measurements' field, the end point after you have moved an entity. You can define the end point location as lengths, relative coordinates, and polar coordinates.

Length

You can change the length of a move operation, after the move operation is complete, using a length. For example, to set the length to 10 points, type 10pt followed by the Enter key (Microsoft Windows) or return key (Mac OS X). The entity will move 10 points from the start point in the direction of the original move.

Absolute coordinates are measured from the upper left-hand corner of the page.

Relative Coordinates

You can set the end point of a move operation, after the move operation is complete, as a point relative to the start point of the move operation. For example, to set the end point to a location 1.5 points right and 2.3 points down from the start point, type followed by the Enter key (Microsoft Windows) or return key (Mac OS X). Note that to move down on the page the y value of the move is positive.

Polar Coordinates

You can set the end point of a move operation, after the move operation is complete, as a polar point relative to the start point of the move operation. For example, to set the end point to a location 45 degrees (counter clock-wise from the positive x axis) and 10 centimeters from the start point, type ^45,10cm followed by the Enter key (Microsoft Windows) or return key (Mac OS X).

Precise Scaling Using the Select Tool

You can create precise scaling operations by explicitly typing in a scale multiplier relative to the current scale direction. The 'Measurements' field prompt changes to 'Scale' when the Scale cursor is active.

Horizontal Scale

You can set a scale multiplier or scale size (with units) along the x axis after scaling an entity with a horizontal scale grip. For example, type 1.5 to scale the entity horizontally by a multiplier of 1.5 or type 1.5cm to set the width of the entity to 1.5 centimeters.

Vertical Scale

You can set a scale multiplier or scale size (with units) along the y axis after scaling an entity with the vertical scale grip. For example, type 1.5 to scale the entity vertically by a multiplier of 1.5 or type 1.5cm to set the height of the entity to 1.5 centimeters.

Corner Scale

You can set a uniform scale multiplier, non-uniform scale multipliers, or scale size (with units) after scaling an entity with corner scale grip. For example, type 1.5 to uniformly scale the entity by a multiplier of 1.5. Type 1.5,2.0 to scale the entity by a scale multiplier of 1.5 in the x direction and 2.0 in the y direction. Finally, type 1.5pt, 6pt to set the width to 1.5 points and a height to 6 points.

Precise Rotating Using the Select Tool

You can create precise rotate operations by explicitly typing an angle value into the 'Measurements' field after rotating with the Select tool. For example, type 30 to rotate counter-clockwise 30 degrees.
