scaling in one direction

edited January 2013 in Layout
Hallo everyone.
How do I scale one object along one axis only?

I have an instance which is containing several differently-shaped poligons and i would like it to get "taller" or "shorter" along the y-axis, but the only option I see, is to scale it on both axis. Modifying the different polygons in Partial mode would take me forever.

Thank you!

    there is no such function yet, because is somewhat contradicts with the concepts of GDS (constant width of paths, isotropic scaling only for instances).

    However, I have been requested that function several times now so I will try to provide a reasonable implementation in the next major release. Till then you can use the Ruby script which at least provides a solution for shapes (you can flatten instances to make shapes from child cells).

    I have provided that script in the "Useful Scripts" section here:

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks, I will have a look in this script ! Such an asymetrical scaling could be of a great help.
