Re: Stretching grouped objects

I would export an in image of the objects into Inkscape or GIMP for stretching and then bring that image back into Dia.  It isn't a shape with connection ponts but it would serve as a work around.

But I am not aware that you can stretch a group in Dia.  You have to keep in ming that Dia is a diagramming software, not an image manipulation software.  I just a few minutes ago wanted to combine two previously existing Dia grams and one was scaled a little smaller than I liked.  I was wishing for a scaling function then, but it isn't in the version I prefer v0.95-pre7

I don't think it is possible to do what you want.  Even in Inkscape the vector capabilities only let you work on canned shapes like rectangles and elipse/circles, lines and arcs - not on groups of these together.  GIMP has some interesting transformation capabilities.  I sometimes transform misshapen scans which is sort of what you are describing.
