Expand position not size?


#1

I have a grid of about 7000 circles. There 7 different circle sizes. Each of the seven circles is a separate block.The grid is a 1" x 1" sq pattern.

The client now wants the same file but 3 times larger. If I just expand the file by 3 everything will be visually correct but the original block definitions will still be 1/3 the new size. Which will cause me problems down the road.

Ideally I would like to expand the grid and expand the position of each of the blocks so they would all now sit on a 3" grid. I could then go into the block definitions and scale them each up by 3 and then everything would be correct.

But I can’t figure out how to do that. Is it possible? Or is it painfully obvious and I’m too tired to see it?

Thanks for any suggestions you have.

Thanks Pascal! Exactly what I was looking for. Saved me about a zillion hours of work.
