Is there a way to replace objects of the canvas by another respecting the proportions?
For example, in my drawing I have many rectangles of different sizes and I want to replace them with another shape or symbol but respecting the dimensions of the original rectangles.
With clones, perhaps?
UPDATE: It is important to note that there are many objects that I have to replace. Replacing manually is not an option. I have maps that are being imported into Inkscape with symbology in different sizes and the goal is to replace them with others automatically or semi-automatically.
