I have a selection of paths in illustrator (cs6).
I want to select all the paths and free transform them to something like a 3rd of the size. The problem is when I shrink them down, the stroke on the paths stays the same. So originally some had 1pt and 2pt stroke, bit when I free transform all the paths to a 3rd of the original size, the strokes are all still 1pt and 2pt big.
I don’t want to have to go through each path and change the stroke, as it would take a long time. is there a tool/option in illustrator that can help with this?
Using the Scale tool, tick the check box which says “Scale strokes and effects” before scaling. That reduces your strokes proportionally.
