Learn about resizing placed artwork in Illustrator.
- [Instructor] Here's our box with the artwork…that doesn't fit around the side.…Let's now go back into Illustrator…and resize this part of the artwork.…Here's the artwork as we created it,…and because Dimension reduces the width…as it goes around the side by 50%,…we have to compensate for that by enlarging it 50%.…So we'll select it, and in the Properties pane,…we'll set the reference point on the left…and now we can set the width of it from 149,…let's call that 150, we'll double that to 300.…
And now it makes it twice as wide.…It looks all wrong here,…but Dimension will reduce that again.…To export it, we'll select all of our artwork,…open our Export panel, and drag it in.…Now this is new behavior in Illustrator CC 2018.…If we just drag all of the artwork in as normal,…we find that it turns every single object in there…into a separate piece of artwork.…That's clearly not what we want here.…
So Undo, and instead hold down the option or alt key,…and when you drag it in,…it'll now make it a single piece of artwork.…
