Scaling an object via the mouse

Post by Ashley1105 » Thu Nov 21, 2019 5:41 am

Hello,
Is there a way to select and scale an object via a mouse + keyboard command, or something similar?
So you can see the object get bigger and smaller in real time instead of guessing what increment it needs to be resized to.

I am using QCAD on iMac 10.15.1
Version of QCAD is QCAD Pro 3.23.0

Thank you.

Yes, within the Scale dialog is the possibility given to define the scale factor with the mouse.
