I would like to draw a rectangle of a certain size (150 s.f.) then stretch it from a corner but have it automatically adjust to maintain the size desired. So I would start with a 10 x 15 shape, then have ability to stretch to 12.5' x ? and as I stretch say the 10' width toward 12.5' the other end of rectangle (15) reduces to 12.
Is it possible?

Yes, constraints are availale. But not that easy to get a rectangle to maintain an area. Not sure if I can set the right comb. of variables to get what I want but thanks for the suggestion.
1. Select the rectangle and autoconstrain it.
2. Add a linear dimension constrain for the height and set it to the desired height (d1)
3. Add a linear dimension constraint for the width with the constraint text (<your target area>/d1)
4. Change dimension d1. Dimension d2 changes to make the area constant.
