    Hi guys, I just upgraded from CS2 to CS3. I have a quick question on scaling an object. When I was in CS2 I was able to scale my logos or artwork that had a stroke on it and it maintained that stroke when I made it bigger.

    Now with CS3, it still keeps the same weight of the stroke but as you make it bigger the stroke gets smaller. I know that didn't make sense how I explained it but I want the stroke to be in proportion to how I originally had it. What's the best way to do this, otherwise I'll keep working in CS2.

    I know i can path stroke everything but i really don't want too, I know there's a way to do this can someone give me some insight.

    Double-click on your Scale tool in your Toolbar. Check the box Scale Strokes & Effects. Now whether you scale with the Scale tool's dialogue box or the Black Arrow tool you'll scale your strokes as well as the object
