Cancel that about “reversing” – my mistake :). The rest holds true.

comment How to resize an EPS file in Illustrator to fit a pixel size?
Actually you don't even have to calculate scale. In info panel, between width and height controls, there's a small “chain” icon. If it's “pressed”, each value entered to into one of the controls will cause the other to be set to a value which maintains scaled object proportions. E.g. width was 400 px, height 300 px. New width was 200 px, so new width is set to 150 px. Even if “chain” icon is “off” (the following reverses its setting temporarily) you can force this behavior by entering value and pressing Ctrl/Command+Enter.

Is this problem specific to Adobe apps or is it system wide?

@DA01: I enjoyed our discussion too! :) Good and high quality arguments from your side, supported by experience. I'm taking your opinion into account. Even though I can't agree with it as a whole, I fully respect it.

WYSIWYG also makes learning easier and makes much less strain for the memory. "It's for letting people that don't want to learn something limp along. ;)" – I get the ";)" :), but even people "willing to learn" created assemblers and higher level languages ;). And about architect whos designs "can't be built"… or can they, if only some effort will be put into breaking barriers? :)

Constraints are a wall. Some walls can be brought down – that's where the progress lies, other can't for now. It's good to know they're here, but there will be no progress if all walls will be considered permanent.

comment Mockups: Coding vs Drawing?
Designers think "visually", so I don't blame them for not being "hot" for "translating" their ideas to an abstract code. If that wasn't true there woudn't be any WYSIWYG tools out there. I also don't blame designers for being attracted by flash. Look what they can do with it :). I personally prefer way of HTML5, but that's the other thing. A few words about printing then. You've said that knowing it specificity is just "about understanding the medium and its associated constraints". What does constraints do, if not hold you back?

@DA01: I woudn't go as far as considering "designing" and "coding" to be synonyms.

I can agree as long as you mean a team as a whole. I think that, when you're just designing UI/UX, not coding it, knowledge of code inner workings can actually hold you back, because you'll tend to avoid some potential solutions only because you'll consider them "too hard to implement". It means that your designs can be stripped of some brilliant ideas, because "toolkit thinking" will lock up parts of your imagination. Then again… it's only one side of the blade :) Besides, the question was about "mock-ups" only.

Actually, coding without designing UI first is quite valid technique. That is, of course, if "coding" doesn't mean UI or UX parts :). Most APIs and libraries are designed in fact without taking UI into account – that would be just impractical.

comment Illustrator Text Bounding Box Resize
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that you want to: select a group of elements (among them some text in "frames" or "free"), resize them together by using bounding box handlers and on the top of that you don't want text itself scaled but "text frames" are to be resized? Am I right? If not, provide an illustration to help to clarify your question.
