scaling image in image frame
« on: December 02, 2015, 02:39:21 pm »
Hey guys,
I've got a question concerning image frames:
I placed a picture inside the frame. After a double-klick onto the image, I can move the image around in the frame which is quite nice. However, I didn't find a simple way to scale the image size in the frame. Normally I would just drag one corner but that isn't working... I just found the option to press F2 -> image and set the X/Y-size manually which is of course really precise but not too intuitive/handy. So is there any shortcut such that I could accomplish this task?
Thanks and best regards!

too bad :(
but writing a python script to do so isn't that hard. But is there a way to bind a shortcut to a specific script?

Hi,

if I understand right, you can right-click in the picture and then choose Adjust Image to Frame.

You can also use the mouse scroll wheel in the width and height boxes in the properties palette (that's how I usually scale images that are not intended to fit the frame). It can be done both individually for width and height or with locked aspect ratio.
