  1. Glad you liked my tip how to scale a Contour, Jeff.

    One thing though, that is very important to remember when doing this:
    Even though the Contour seems to scale with the Control object, its offset value will not change. So in this case, it will still be 0.5″ after scaling up or down.

    Not a big deal but it may cause some confusion if you open the file up again a year later or so, and read in Property Bar that you have a 0.5″ Contour, while in reality it is something very much different.

    To be safe I recommend breaking the Contour group apart before grouping.
    Doing this will of course break the “live contour” but it is rather easy to recreate if needed.
