Scaling via Percentage - N to OO Rail Guage

rob_frob_f Member Posts: 2
How do I scale in percentage?

I have a template that is Model Rail N Gauge 1:160 and I need to scale it up to OO Gauge 1:76

OO is 211% larger than N

Within the transform option what do I need to enter for "Scale"?

    I would put in 160/76 (which equals 2.1052...). A scale of 1.0 in the transform tool is 100% or the same size.

    The help documentation is oddly lacking in this regards. It just assumes that we know this.
