Description morbe 2005-11-23 13:29:58 UTC
As of my knowing, changing an objects size is only possible to a new absolute
value of size. I mean one cannot scale an object to 200 percent of its actual
size which is quite often needed when creating technical drawings. Otherwise it
is needed to calculate the new size with help of a calculator.

best regards, G. Morbe

Retested with OOo 2.3.1.
Feature is not available. (or not documented)

When editing drawings, it is sometimes needed to scale an existing object to
200% of its actual size. HOW to do that in OO draw??
