"Scaling Tool" (scale stroke weight, shadow effects & corners when resizing)
Ability to scale attributes proportionately. When creating shapes, buttons, or icons within XD sometimes they need to be scaled to different sizes. Currently when scaling these shapes, buttons, or icons created within XD we can no scale some of the attributes proportionately.
As an example I create a container box with a stroke, border-radius, shadow, and paragraph text. If I need to scale proportionately, like say 50%, the stroke, border-radius, shadow, and paragraph text don't scale proportionately.
(Currently using Windows Beta Version: 0.6.8.6)

No words. Just wow. Great feature prioritisation process you've got going on over there Adobe. Also LOL @Nicholas Crofoot #feelsbadman

It is absolutely unfathomable that this is NOT already a day one basic piece of functionality. This is not a "feature". That's like saying being able to walk AND chew gum is a feature instead of being a basic function for anyone with an IQ above 5.
Just spent 3 days creating a fully custom set of icons and components in a master library and instantly find out that it's 100% useless since NOTHING scales correctly.
This should be a basic function, why not? !

This is really irritating me alot, please bring that ai feature to xd
Need this feature right now so badly... I was hoping to find a solution here but it seems not. :(

So as of v.34 we can now do 3D transformations... but still cannot scale up a stroke. I agree with others before me. This should not be a feature request. This is just basic expected functionality.

This feature needs to drop at MAX
Dear Adobe, really, so basic tool and still not available? I can't scale a simple colorful SVG icon. Shame on you!
this is bloody embarrassing for you,. one of the most fundamental things every, you need to be able to resize a png you made in illustrator ffs!

Why doesnt XD have the most basic, fundamental ability to scale a stroke? when i scale a graphic with a stroke i should have the options to scale stroke and effects uniformly just as illustrator has. it isnt rocket science, this is basic, basic stuff. please add it
Yes please, we need this

Was working on some designs in XD and I had to ditch it for Illustrator because this basic option doesn't exist in XD
As somewhat a newbie to XD, (not to design tools) I just made an assumption that something as simple as scaling my SVG's was a BASIC feature. Alas, I searched the help and tried different things to proportionally scale my SVG - but as you and Adobe know, its a mess!.
Coming here proves that this simple feature is not available. How on earth with all of the updates you have had to this product has this gone un-fixed.
Worse still is that this request to fix it goes back to March 2016 !! - So not only are you failing to fix basic features for a design tool you are failing to listen to your customers.
Lack of this basic feature is what is known as a Fuster Cluck !
C'mon team Adobe - Pull your finger out.
Another example of a software made by Adobe that should have all functionalities that they have integrated in their other design programs. Specially Illustator that seems to be close to XD as managing vectors. You would imagine that the team of XD and the team of Illustrator are integrated as it should be as the user is really working with both programs at the same time.

Thank you for this. I suggest that the Adobe Xd dev team look at Adobe Illustrator > Scale Strokes and Effects preference as it does exactly what the OP and I need *I think*
Rather than change the scaling operation itself, an XD function to Make Vector (like outline stroke in AI) within XD would probably be appropriate. I already have to fumble around responsive resize all the time and don't need another scaling option.
Are there any workarounds other than using AI?
Copy elements, paste in illustrator, select all, object>path>outline stroke, select all and copy, paste back into XD.
Stroke will now scale proportionately with other elements
Would love borders that scale with size. If I have a 100x100 rectangle with a 10px border I'd like the option to scale the border with the rectangle (1000x1000 rectangle = 100x100 border).
