Setting the scale anchor point

You can change an object's anchor point from its center to any of its eight selection handles by enabling a different anchor point button at the bottom of the Transformation Docker. Clicking one of these buttons defines a point that remains fixed when you scale the object. As a result, you scale the object around that point.

To set an object's scale anchor point

1 Select the object with the Pick tool.

2 Click Arrange, Transformation, and click the Scale and Mirror button.

3 Enable an Anchor Point check box to assign an anchor point.

The check boxes correspond to the eight selection handles and the object's center.

4 Click the Apply button.

To reset the scale anchor point to its center

1 Follow steps 1 to 3 from the previous procedure.

2 Enable the Anchor Point button representing the object's center.

3 Click the Apply button.

• By default, an object scales around an anchor point in the middle of its selection box, but you can change the anchor point to suit your needs.
