Tip Tuesday - Resizing in SCAL

I know there are a lot of new SCAL users out there and seems like a lot more questions are popping up. So I decided to do Tip Tuesday. Stop back every Tuesday (I hope) for tips on SCAL, Scrapbooking, Crafting, etc.

Someone asked about sizing two layered SVGs on the SVG Cuts Forum and here is how I do it:

Step 1
Import your bottom & top layer SVGs into SCAL.

Step 2
Click on both images while holding down the shift key. Continue to hold down on the shift key and click on the bottom right icon and drag to the size you would like.

Step 3
Now you have two SVGs that are both sized up proportionately. You can now copy and paste more of them if you like.

Please note: Another way to resize is to use the Width & Height box within the Properties box. Make "Keep Proportions" is checked when you enter in your new width/height. You can either click on each image separately and resize or for a short cut you can select both together and resize.

As you can see there are many different ways to do things in SCAL or any program - just sharing how I do things :)
