comment How do I calculate the new x,y coordinates and width/height of a re-sized group of objects?
so awesome, this is working wonderfully...thanks very much. lopsy confirmed the height/width resizing, and this really helped me nail the x,y coordinates -- which was my biggest sticking point, so i'll award the answer here.

the origin is the upper-left of a scrollable canvas -- so the x,y coordinates of the orig box could feasibly be any random x,y coordinates, up to 50000,50000 in this example. not sure if that helps.

thanks lopsy....i had something kinda close, but i'm trying to use your advice now...one more question: what if the center of the resizing were 556,785 for example (this would be the middle of the bounding box that's doing the resizing) -- what would the coordinates be with that center in mind?
