Learn how 9-slice scaling in Adobe Illustrator allows you to protect a portion of a symbol from transforms and edits.

But if I check these, which is often…a way that I work, and click OK,…and we make another copy of this object…and scale it down, you're gonna see…that the object is going to become modified.…The stroke was gonna become thinner,…and obviously the corner rounding…is going to become thinner as well.…Sometimes this may be something that you'll want…to have happen, but oftentimes, it's not.…Let's look at how symbols can help resolve…these sorts of issues.…I'm going to go into my symbol library,…and I'm gonna take my original image…
