    Can this scale be used in the paint app on the computer to add scale items such as doors and windows? I use my own pictures for my lay out.

    • Mikesays:

      The scale tool scales anything down or up in size – trains, buildings, people, doors etc. Experiment with it and see what you can and can’t do.
