I'm a new Vectric user so forgive me if I'm not posting my question in the appropriate forum. I'm using VCarve Desktop Ver. 9.008 and have a basic question. I'm trying to resize a circle and can't seem to do this. Seems like it should be a very simple thing to do but checking withing the software and searching on the forums I can't seem to find the answer.

Kind regards,
Peter

There are three main ways of resizing a circle. First (which works with any shape) is to use the size tool; second icon under transform objects or press the T key.

If it's a circle created in VCarve you can use the Circle tool (first icon under Create Vectors) to resize.

Lastly you can go into transform mode (double click) on the circle) and then use the mouse to drag one of the corner squares.

If you haven't been though them yet it's a good idea to work your way though the tutorials in the Video Tutorial Browser it will help with the learning curve.

Thank you Adrian for your help. Is there a way to re-size with an exact size? For instance if I have a circle that is .250 in diameter and I want to resize to .500 can this be done?

Again thank you for your help!

Yes either of the first two option let you type in an exact dimension.

There is also a gadget - http://gadgets.vectric.com/V9/circle_resize.html - that will resize many circles all in one go.

The OP is using Vcarve Desktop Adrian so using the gadget isn't going to be an option :lol: :lol:

Hi Peter,

As Adrian mentioned, looking through the Video Tutorials will help a great deal, you'll find the Tutorial Browser at the link below,
http://support.vectric.com/tutorials/V9/?software=4&category=2&order=1

This will take you straight to the Getting Started Videos, I think once you feel comfortable with those, you could look at the Introduction to Drawing Vectors

http://support.vectric.com/tutorials/V9/selectedvideo.php?video_id=99

& The Vectric Widget video

http://support.vectric.com/tutorials/V9/selectedvideo.php?video_id=16,

which goes into a lot of detailed information about all the different ways you can draw and resize vectors along with utilizing keyboard shortcuts to make the process even more efficient.

The trial version can't be used as you have discovered, when this happened to me I contacted Vectric Support who sent me a new download link, I then saved a copy of the download & put it away safely for a rainy day. :lol: :lol:

Probably won't ever need it now though because my customer portal now contains a download link & registration details for photvcarve as well as Aspire & varve pro. If you have a customer portal check in there for it if not conact Vectric Support as Mike has suggested :lol: :lol:
