Math Resize Extension : Matt Stow

http://www.mattstow.com/

Matt Stow is a web and user interface designer who specialises in designing and developing accessible, standards-compliant websites. From conception to completion, Fireworks and Dreamweaver are his most important companions. Matt is a Fireworks evangelist and can often be found championing its abilities.

His recent invention is Math resize extension.

This extension allow user to resize an object as mathematically. I’s really useful to resize an object exact value without distortion. For example if you create rounded corner rectangle resize object via scale tool, the corner will be distorted. You need to use 9-slice scale tool to avoid problem or simply type exact value in PI W, H field. However, using this extension, it will help you to simple calculation to resize object.

Give it a try!
