Scale dimensions in IDW drawing

Simply put I'd like to take a set of ordinate dimensions and multiply all the values by 10. Is this possible, without overriding the values and making them static?


The reason I'm asking is because I'm making a flat layout sketch for pockets around a drum. So imagine taking a drum and rolling it out flat. In the direction along the drum I drew it as 1" = 1" and for the circumfrence direction I did 1" = 10° so I don't have sketch that is 13" x 360". So I need to scale the dimensions in 1 direction up by 10.

Quick answer is 'no'.  That said, I'm sure that a macro or iLogic rule could be written to make this happen for you.
