Default Any MDS Experts Out There?

I downloaded the MDS trial to try it out and am already having a bit of problem.

I placed a background paper on my project (a scrapbook page). I want to add another DSP design. I figured out how to add it as an object instead of a background (Add as Page Layer), but I can't figure out how to resize it? When I try to drag the corners, it tells me that resizing it may result in it becoming pixelated for printing. And, if I resize it, the pattern just increases in size. How to I increase the size of the piece without affecting the size of the pattern?

I also tried "edit object" from the menu and it doesn't work either.

Try it this way instead:
Add the square punch. Then drag the edges to make it as big as you want (a nice way to make a full page strip or large box). Then FILL with your designer paper and it will not pixelate.
There is a forum at www.mydigitalstudio.net where you can ask questions and get lots of tips. And here is a post where I show how to fill the daisy punch with DSP: CRAFTDOC Blog Archive My Digital Studio – Part 3 – create your own
There are also digital stamping and scrapbooking forums here on SCS.

You can also double right mouse click on the page layer and a little window should open allowing you to change the size of the page layer and crop it to the area of the DSP that you want.
