Scale

Scale[g,s]
represents graphics primitives g scaled by a factor s.

Scale[g,s,{x,y,}]
scales with the point kept fixed.

Scale[g,{sx,sy,},]
scales by different factors along different axes.

DetailsDetails

  • Scale[g,s] scales with the center of the bounding box of g kept fixed.
  • You can specify special points such as {Left,Bottom} within the bounding box for g to be kept fixed.
  • The x position can be specified as Left, Center, or Right; the y position as Bottom, Center, or Top.
  • Explicit coordinates are taken to be in the coordinate system of the graphic in which Scale[] appears.
  • For objects specified with scaled coordinates Scaled[{x,y}], Scale effectively applies its transformation to the corresponding ordinary coordinates.
  • Scale can modify the regions allocated to Text and Inset objects, but does not directly affect their contents, and does not scale fonts or other textual elements. »
  • Normal[expr] if possible replaces all Scale[gi,] constructs by versions of the in which the coordinates have explicitly been transformed.
