I have a vector illustration of a vintage engraving (lots of fine lines). When I scale it down it gets very black and loses the while space. Is there something I can do to keep the proportions and balance. (I have checked scale strokes in the scale dialog box).

Thank you!

Can we assume that you checked Scale Strokes and Effects before you scaled the illustration? Sometimes it's the little things…
