I have a rectangle art-board. I am trying to place 3 identical vector graphics in different colors onto the board. I want them to be scaled, spaced apart evenly. I can't seem to find the rescale function where I can enter exact dimensions that I want. I know you can drag to scale via toolbar icon but this doesn't fit my needs.

I am using latest version of Adobe illustrator CC


Enter the size you want in the Control Bar

Or the Transform Panel

If you really want to scale... just double-click the Scale Tool or choose Object > Transform > Scale... from the menu

You may also find the Distribute Spacing buttons on the Align Panel helpful in getting the three objects evenly spaced.

  • Thank you for the detailed answer. I don't see the Control Bar option. I prefer this over the Transform Panel. – user23905 May 19 '14 at 18:00
  • The control bar option will only appear if your monitor is large enough to show it. Otherwise you get a link to the Transform Panel. – Scott May 19 '14 at 18:07
