THANK YOU!!!!! This worked PERFECTLY!!!!!!!
Fantastic, been trying to figure this out for a while, thanks.
Lol still a thing 14 years later.
In 2022, you can do this.
Select the first object in the series. Choose your anchor point up top
Do whatever you need to do using Transform-->Scale
Select the other objects and choose Transform-->Transform Again Individually
Very similar to Transform Each in Illustrator, difference being you need to do that first step.
