You're probably better off resizing the canvas for the specific page, then scaling the rectangle aftaerwards. Adjusting Canvas size won't
affect the size of the images on the page.
Thank you! One more question, though. After I resize the canvas, do I simply draw a new rectangle over the old one? Or can I delete the old rectangle, then draw a new one on the blank canvas?
You could delete the old one and start over, if it has too many things you don't like about it. However, the rectangles are vector objects and are editable. If all you want is a rectangle with different dimensions, select your current rectangle and change its height, width, and position with the Info panel:
You can change the dimensions and position of any object with the Info panel, not just rectangles. For odd-shaped objects, the values refer to the bounding box.
Thank you, Pixlar. However, I couldn't adjust the rectangle as you suggested, as it was on my master page. That was the problem I was having: Both the canvas and the texture layer I put on it (ie, the rectangle) were on the master page. I wanted to change the dimensions of both canvas and rectangle on only one page. Following Jim's suggestion, I was able to change the canvas, but not the rectangle (at least,not without adjusting the master page, which would have affected the layout of twenty other pages).
I finally decided to follow your other suggestion: Delete the old one and start over.
Thank you again for your help. Nice having a forum like this to turn to.
OK if that rectangle is on the master page, but needs to be in a different location on certain pages, you will have to remove it from the master page, add it to ONE page in your design (on it's own layer) then share that layer to all pages except the one that is different in dimension.
Add the object to that larger page as well (not shared this time) and scale it as needed.
Sharing layers to pages is far more flexible than applying objects tot he Master page.
Thanks much! Makes perfect sense, now that you've explained it.
