1. Scaling an object is a huge pain, it scales the whole entire thing when at times I just want to elongate a part, say like a wall width. Why is this not an option?

2. How come it never shows the units in inches or mm like other software? I have to scale objects as a whole by increments of 1, but what dimension is this because increasing an object by 1 can make something massive.

Hello Shanrein,

Actually, you can scale an object (e.g. box) in either direction. To do that, use either the white dots appearing in the 3D Area on the selected object, or from the Transform tab of Object Properties panel (located at the left-side of SimLab Composer' GUI) by changing one of the Scale values (x, y, or z spinner).
