This feature empowers you to transform objects individually, preserving their relative positions effortlessly.

Let's say you are working on a figure, and your goal is to resize specific cells while keeping them perfectly aligned within the canvas. Our new feature allows you to apply changes independently, ensuring that objects stay precisely where you want them.

Let's dive into how it works:

1. Independent Transformations

Select the objects you wish to transform and specify the desired dimensions and units.

  • To select a group of objects you can right-click and select the “Select all same” feature to transform a group of objects. Alternatively, you can hold the shift key and use the click/drag option to select a group.

The objects will then change positions with the X and Y positions on the Canvas.

2. Precision with Percentages

If you prefer working with percentages rather than fixed units, you may also select this option under Units. Whether you want to decrease their size by 90% or apply another percentage-based adjustment, this feature will fine-tune their positions to ensure they align perfectly within your canvas.


  1. Select an individual object or the entire group you wish to transform

  2. Click on the Transform Button on the Upper Toolbar

  3. You can Rotate the desired object or change the Dimension of the group or single icon. The resized icons will remain in their original place/location.
