If I draw a path with a stroke (e.g. 3pt) and then want to scale it down to fit, the line value stays the same, how do I scale it up/down and have the stroke adjust automatically?


Select the item and then open the Transform Panel (Window → Transform or Shift+F8)

Now toggle on/off Scale Strokes & Effects (this will leave the stroke width the same while scaling)

enter image description here

Scale Strokes & Effects ON:

Toggled on
▲ Stays the same size (relatively)

Scale Strokes & Effects OFF:

Toggled off
▲ Stays the same size (absolutely)
