FS#936 - Disproportional scaling of block references


... doesn’t works proper at circles and ellipses.

Circles: the scale works only proportional even though I have the options for x and y.
Ellipses: The same but if I play around with the x, y fields it will freeze the scale possibility.

Yes, this is a 'known limitation'.
Disproportional scaling of block references only makes sense for blocks that only contain lines or points at the moment.

When using the Modify - Scale tool with different factors for X and Y, arcs and circles are simply transformed into ellipses.
However, entities which are part of a block are defined inside the block so their type cannot be changed.

A potential solution would be to only apply the scaling to the visual representation of the block, but this would break the Block - Explode tool in those cases, so this definitely needs some more thought.

Yes I knew that this is a 'known limitation' but my conclusion after the 3.3.2 release (Support non-uniform scaling of arcs, circles, ellipses) was simple: Maybe now it's possible to have this function also for blocks ...
However - I'm sure you will find a nice solution - as always! ;-)
