You can scale each axis with the scale at the side of the DRO, if you want X to be 10 times bigger you enter that in the box, if you want it to be 1/2 size you enter 0.5 etc.

i did it; i put 2 in that scale dro to make my drawing two times bigger, but it stays the same.
the default values of this dro are +1.0000, i changed it to +2.0000, nothing changed.

Hit "regen" to see the new size in the toolpath.
