I have a vector logo and I need to upscale it to 6000 pixels, but for some reason, when I resize it, the whole thing doesn't resize, even if they are grouped...

Stretches as far as about 2000 px, but over that it breaks...

The canvas is set to 8000 also in case that's the problem?

enter image description here

  • I assume that's live type. What is the point size? – Cai Oct 8 '16 at 10:20
  • Also why are you resizing in pixels? Assuming everything is vector then you can output at whatever size you like, no need to resize in Illustrator. – Cai Oct 8 '16 at 10:22
  • Fonts are in pixels now, should I change to points? The get it done and .com expands fine, but the X and the xuzo don't... – Bruno Vincent Oct 8 '16 at 14:15
  • Points = pixels in illustrator. The unit doesn't matter anyway. There is a max point size of 1296pt so if you're trying to scale it larger than that, that's your problem. Outline your type if you need to, but there's rarely any reason to actually work that big. – Cai Oct 8 '16 at 14:20

The point size was the problem, I turned the image into outlines and it worked.

Thanks for the answer Cai.
