I have some products that I make that a customer has asked if it would be possible to have them reduced by 50% is there any way anyone knows how I can do this quickly without having to draw them again.

you could always try the SCALE command, maybe the clue is in the name.

That makes as much sense as infinity/2

Be Noice!

.9 would be pointless and imperceptible
.8 is to fit a little better than .9
.7 is just wierd
.6 would be a little larger than .5
.5 would be half
.4 would be .4
.3 would be 1/3
.2 would be one fifth
.1 would be one tenth

Good Luck, see the one in the middle (1/2). More than one
