Is it possible to resize a grouped element, and preserve the centering of its child elements? Also, is it possible when resizing the group element that the elements inside the group, preserve their ratio?

It's getting a bit tiresome having to realign the children elements every time I resize the parent element.

Here is my approach. For instance we have several shapes: enter image description here

Select all the shapes and group them + G. Select the group and lock its size by pressing lock icon in inspector view. enter image description here

After you can resize the group and all child shapes will preserve their ratio and position: enter image description here
