Re: Resize a path changes outline

Thanks Daniel, last question - will any path work as described or is this behaviour seen for converted elements only because outline information got lost? So as I understand, stretching a path does not recalculate the object corners and use the given outline setting to get a perfect result but just ...

Re: Resize a path changes outline

Hi Paul,

hope that explains it a little bit better - here are three simple steps to see what I've meant:

Resize a path changes outline

When changing the size of a rectangle (ellipse,...) the surrounding line width will be changed as well. Is there a possibility to keep the outline width unchanged?

Re: Find and replace text function?

Would love find&replace as well.

It would be also cool if found elements of a search could be modified (setting a font attribute, color or just doing a delete) for selected objects. Actually you can only select a single element of the result list.
