# Resize a Whole bunch of objects

I have a large web graphic that I now need to change.   I know that one element in the graphic wil go from 680px to 740px.

I know that the dimension box will take some maths but would i.e. 680+60 but is there a sum that I could use to get that increment, select everything and apply it to all objects.

I'm not sure if I any at all, but mathematics is not one of my strengths!

Martin,

What you need is to have everything resized by the same proportion, in other words 740/680. Unfortunately that is not a nice number, and Illy only does one number at a time, so you may select all and either:

Object>Transform>Scale and insert 7400/68 as Unifrom Scale %, or:

1) In the transform palette, multiply the W (or) H value by 0.74 and Ctrl/CmdClick to preserve proportions;

2) In the transform palette, divide the W (or) H value by 0.68 and Ctrl/CmdClick to preserve proportions.

A is easier.

The closest you can probably come with AI is 108.8236% which is 740.00048.

Select the items you want to scale.

DoubleClick the Scale Tool.

In the Scale Dialog's Uniform field, enter [desired size of known object]/[current size of known object].

Click outside the field, but not outside the dialog, to commit the field and make it do the math.

Move the decimal two positions rightward. Click OK.

Probably mentioned, there's a "Transform Each" command as well, so they don't move in relation to each other.

For my part you are welcome, Martin.

Applied to a length of 10,000pt, the result should be 10.882.353pt.

Done according to A) in the first post or to post #3, which is basically the same, the result is 10,882.354pt

Done according to B in the first post, the result is 10,882.354pt

Done according to post #2, the result is 10,882.359pt
