View Full Version : 150% scale (or stretch)

10 October 2003, 10:30 PM
I've been using LW since 5.6 and I can't remember ever being able to scale (or stretch) something to exactly 150% without using the numeric panel.

It's not a big deal but it would be interesting to know the math behind a limitation like that =)

just checked it seems to go from 149% streight to 152%. strange

149% -> 151% here.

Strange indeed :)

I think it has something to do with the way dragging a value uses a logrithmic scale. Like when you move the values from 1-149 it goes through every number, 150-? skips a number every few,
at high numbers it really starts skipping numbers.

The idea would be that you don't have to push your mouse quite so many times to get to 100000%
