Could that be similar to a proposed
(at least in this mail list) property
for groups?

For example, if you have a group with many
controls, using this proposed "scale" property
you could write:

set the scale of grp 1 to 250 without scrollbars
(250 % percent of original size or 2.5x larger)
The option of "with/without scrollbars" would
allows greater flexibility. Implemented in this
way, that property would be really useful.

If you want to check a really astounding "scaling"
implementation, check no further that Xara, the
graphics software that goes up to a 25,000 enlargement:

In an ideal world, Xara would be using the LiveCode script
language and LiveCode would be using the superfast
graphics layer that Xara uses.
