How can I re-size a drawing (scale up or scale down)??

Richard_HRichard_H Member Posts: 7 PRO
I have a drawing of a feature that I want to scale up or down to fit a number of different applications.
For the first application the feature needs to be half size.
Can I reduce the sizes on the original drawing globally to create a new drawing which is half size?
I don't want to change every dimension individually!!
I'm sure I can't be the only person who needs to do this.
Appreciate any help.
Thank you.

    Are you referring to a sketch in a part studio? There isn't a scale sketch feature yet. Best I have been able to come up with to achieve the desired effect is to extrude a part from the sketch then scale the extrusion using the transform feature.
