Hi guys,

Does anyone know how I can do an edit so that I edit the size of shape in a collective action in stead of individually changing all the shapes in my diagram.

You can select all the objects and then holding down the Shift key, drag the selection rectangle to scale them up or down.

Hi Kiron,

 

This does indeed scale them up or down however what it doesn't do is get all the shapes the same size. I have done a diagram whereby most of the shapes need to be resized to look more like a rectangle instead of a square. The method you have mentioned would just simply make them look bigger or smaller but it doesn't necessarily get them all looking the same if that makes sense?

Unfortunately there isn’t a way to resize shapes to all match a certain dimension. The way I’ve done something similar in the past is duplicate the same shape and use the shape morph tool to change it (e.g. square → circle). Alternately, you’d use the alignment guide lines to manually change the shape dimensions in relation to a baseline shape.
