I am new to this software. 

I have tried importing and using the derive option to import these buildings that has been extracted from a different software. The import was okay however I am unable to use the transform function to scale it to larger size (currently its smaller than 0.86mm). Could you please advise what other options to fix this?

I have attached the link below for your view.


Thank you in advance.

    Hello and welcome! 

    When scaling uniformly, you need to select a point to scale from. In my example below, I selected the origin.

    Plus you can edit the import feature and change the units.
