In Illustrator 10 you must

  • Enter one dimension
  • Hold down Control and enter Tab
Don't ask why. CS2 is more traditional.

Theres a little icon next to where you enter the numeric value, it looks like a little link of chain, click on it.

Look under Window>Transform and that will give you the transform pallet.
Select your object and it's dimensions will show up there. Change your width from whatever to 8" and hit Command>Return to scale it proportionatly.

That's control>return if your on a pc.
