I have many objects of different sizes in Inkscape, and I need to transform them to the right size. Manually resizing each object takes too much time. How can I achieve this?

Another option:

If you have one object that already has the size you want:

  • copy it
  • then select the other objects that you want to have that same size
  • and do Edit > Paste size > Paste size separately

If you want to keep the aspect ratio, click the lock icon in the select tool's tool bar before pasting either 'width separately', or 'height separately'.

  • wow, that was amazing. I had a bunch of circles, some 0.499 by 0.501 etc etc. I wanted all to be 0.5 by 0.5 exactly. This nailed it. Commented Aug 23, 2021 at 23:09
  • Oh, and just as an added bonus, this kept the circles in the same exact center point. Just what I wanted. If you manually change sizes the have to be realigned Commented Aug 23, 2021 at 23:26

Go to menu Object → Transform (or hit Shift + Ctrl + M by default) and make sure you have Apply to each object separately option enabled – see the picture:
