Scale to Guides?

Post by strido » Fri Oct 20, 2017 8:02 pm

I recently had about 15 files that originated at 8.5 x 11 but needed to be reduced to 5.5x8.5. However, the images themselves on the sheet were also asked to be a specific size on that output.

Thing is, out of the 15 I'd say there were about 8 different actual sizes for the images. In order to get them ALL the specified size, I put the guides from the Design Layout panel on the document(s) to the size requested, and then started scaling the x to hit on the right point, then the y to hit on the right point. This was a lot of scaling, then undoing, then incrementally continuing the process until I got it right.

With about 2 documents left, it occurred to me - how cool would it be if we could put the guides on the sheet, then have an action that scales the image to the guides?

Is that possible or could it be included in a new release?
