In this lesson, you will learn how to quickly resize and rotate objects using the Transform functions. I will be showing some useful transform tricks to create random rotating objects using Transform Each function.
Method 1: Select the object with Selection Tool and the bounding box will appear. Select the corner handle and resize while holding Shift to constrain proportion.
Method 2: To resize from the origin point (the center point of the object), hold Alt/Option while holding Shift.

I liked the repeat trick. The duplicates will follow the direction of the drag.
Thank you! Those tricks were useful.
Didn’t know about rotating around a corner with the rotate tool 😛
coool duplicate trick
i already know that trick because of Corel, thats why i would know if illustrator could do a geometric progression, I mean, this same last trick but recognizing the las change whit a similar progressionfor the next one. For example, I duplicate, then turn 30 degress the duplicated one, then command D to duplicated the turned one, IT WILL APPEAR THE NEW DUPLICATION TURNED PLUS 30 DEGRESS. AND EACH NEXT DUPLICATE (COMMAND+D) THE NEW ONE WILL KEEP TURNING. THAT IS VERY USEFUL.
I know about this tip from Corel as well, however, for some reason when I hit ctrl+d in Illustrator it creates a new one following the same rotation degree but the previous one goes away and I’m left with only the new one, is there a setting I need to change for duplicates or something? Like keep original?
Sorry, nevermind… I got it.
these are great!!!
I know this trick. This site could fully Free!!
You had to ruin it. It was going so good, I actually learned so much and thank you for that. But I knew this was too good to be true.
That’s way more clever than I was epxetcnig. Thanks!
Hi there, I identified your web internet site via Google while looking for a related topic, your internet internet site came up, it looks excellent. I’ve bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.
I am not disappointed because i REALLY am a basic student! So what i see is what i am getting – i started with nothing so this is great. Thanks.
Very good Training

I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that,
how you presented it. Too cool!
