How to resize vectors
In this tutorial you will learn how to resize vector graphics using the Scale Tool or the 9-Slice Scaling Tool if the object is a rounded rectangle, for example a button.
The Scale Tool is common to almost all design software and so is elementary in its usage. However when scaling vector objects care should be taken to ensure that the object expands proportionally both in Height and Width to resize it correctly. The example below shows this.
The 9-Slice Scaling Tool is suitable to resize vector objects where you need the corners to remain the same while the body expands, such as rectangular buttons with rounded corners. Check out the example below that shows how this works fantastically even with a complicated button.
