Rotate and scale objects around a circle


Hello all,

I want to rotate an object, that is centered on the edge of a circle, around the center of the circle and scale the circumference. The problem is that the object should not be scaled, but should keep its original shape and sit centered on the circumference while scaling.

Any idea how to implement this?scale rotate.rp (50.7 KB)


Just restore the original length and width of the “element group” after scale “scale group”.
Don’t forget to choose anchor center.

Thanks again for your help!

@Jorkin: Tere is still a problem:
The element should be part of a larger group. This group is also rotated in both directions by another operation. But then the scaling of the element with the four dots no longer works and it is squashed.
