Trying to scale a vector image in Illustrator using the usual "Selection Tool + Shift" to I can to how I need it to be and its not working. I know this was taken away in Photoshop, but did they do it in Illustrator too? I was using version 21.1.0.
Please help! This is driving me crazy!
No, they did not take it away. Is the Bounding Box showing? (Shift+Cmd+B)
Thank you so much, I lost my bounding box!
Be sure you first use ONLY Selection Tool to adjust size and then press Shift key - be sure you release mouse buton first then Shift key
If you click selected object with Shift Key presses - you deselect it
Hi try to reset your preference and then close the application and open again and use your command all be will be good...Thanks.
What happens exactly?
It doesn't work at all?
Or it does somehow work and then snaps back?
Are smart guides turned on? Can you try and turn them off? Does it work then?
This was happening to me...transforming with the scale tool worked until I tried to constrain proportions by holding the shift key -- then it just snapped back to the original size. Your suggestion to turn off smart guides worked like magic and I never would have figured that out on my own. Many thanks! (This must be a bug, right? Makes no sense at all...)
This worked for me as well. Thank you. It's unfortunate that you can't use guides AND scale proportionally holding shift…something I've done since the beginning of time. (user since Illustrator 88)
I have no problem scaling proportionally using Shift, Guides and Smart Guides in version 25.3.1
THis worked for me
