How do I stretch the box on layout sheet to fit my page?

 

You want to shrink or enlarge the Layout Box proportionally -- height and width at the same time?

 

Hold the C key and drag from a corner handle.

I used to grab the corner button and just pull it.

 

Wasn't that great, just like a picture...   Try shift select and grab the top tab.

Do you mean SHIFT + C  ?

Layout boxes use c or X when holding down corner to resize picture boxes you can grab the corner and drag.

I think it was X10 when we lost that functionality.  It would be great to get it back even as an alternate.

Sometimes with improvements come costs.  The behavior changed when they added the ability to reshape layout boxes.

 

By the way, if you want to anchor and resize with a specific corner anchored in position to match the old functionality, I would suggest you familiarize yourself with 2 tools.

  • Place Point
  • Rotate/Resize About Current Point

 

I have these mapped to hotkeys because I use them so much.  In this example, Place Point at Corner, toggle Rotate/Resize About Current Point on, select your object and drag the corner while holding the X key.
