How do you resize multiple artboards in Illustrator at the same time?

This is a question that has been bugging me for a while.  I'm currently on CS6 but I'm looking for a solution that can also work on CS5 for a co-worker.
Having multiple artboards has been established since CS4 and I have yet to see an official way of resizing multiple artboards, if anything there should at least be a plug-in.
As great of a feature it is, it seems a little short sited.  If one has multiple artboards one should be able to manage multiple artboards, right?
I totally love having multiple artboards but I should be able to resize and manage multiple artboards as well.
This is great for building icon sets but how can I resize the set all at once?
I was considering trying to do an action but odds are I still would have to select an artboard one by one to do which doesn't save much time if you have like 30 artboards to apply this to. 
I don't even see a batch render for artboards and Photoshop has that for its files.
I'm well aware of the solution that is displayed here:
Which is a script.  I'm not sure where I'm supposed to put it.

you can resize the artwork on export. no need to draw it to size.
Unfotunately when I looked into that does not seem to be the case.  However I can resize when I "Save for Web" but that appears to only work for one artboard at a time.  I can Save As or Export multipe artboards but not adjust the size.  Believe me I would be happy if I could resize multiple artboards upon export but apparently that is not an option.

you can put the scripts in illustrator's folder/presets/en_us(or whatever localization you have)/scripts. you can then access them in illustrator from the menubar/File/Scripts/
there are also applications that will let you execute scripts with assigned shortcuts. i believe sparks is free.
Thanks for pointing out the location. 
Do I save it as a txt file or something else?
(I was guessing that I would copy the script into notepad or something)

  • How can I save multiple tabs to open at the same time?

    I have a set of websites that I need to access regularly and I'd like to be able to open all the tabs in a window at the same time rather than clicking on each one individually.  I know this was possible in previous safari versions but I can't figure out how to do it in Yosemite (v8).

  • How do you start 2+ audio files playing at the same time?

    I am trying to play 2 audio files at the same time, but I cannot figure out how to start them playing at the same time without latency issues.
    If someone can please explain the process for doing this using Audio Queue Services, I will forever be in your debt.
    This is for iPhone, but I was getting no love in those forums on this issue.

    Thanks for your reply. Apple's iPhone Application Programming Guide states the Following:
    *Playing Multiple Sounds Simultaneously*
    To play multiple sounds simultaneously, create one playback audio queue object for each sound. For each audio queue, schedule the first buffer of audio to start at the same time using the AudioQueueEnqueueBufferWithParameters function.
    This leads me to believe that it is possible. I have just not been able to get them to play precisely the same time, there is always delay.

  • How can I Resize Two or More Shapes At The Same Time?

    I've got text over a rectangle over another rectangle. When I change my text, the size of the boxes needs to change and it's a drag ot have to do each one separately and constantly realign. Is there a way I can resize both of them at the same time tokeep the proportions the same?
    Or is there a way I can enter #s to resize, so I could just enter the same #s for each shape?

    Here's an example of what Wyodor is referring to: text in shapes within another shape.. It goes one step further and adds the first shape+text into another shape but the concept is the same.

  • How do you add multiple images in Keynote with the same slide formatting?

    I want to add 100+ images into Keynote for a photo slideshow, and I want all of the images to be preformatted using the frame/border style I set up in one of the  master slides...I don't want the images to fill the entire slide, and the goal is to not have to touch every slide and every image.  I know I can add images individually using the media button on the photo placeholder and the photo will fill the frame I have created, but I want to do this for all images at one time.  Is there a way to do this when adding the images into the presentation, or a way to format them all at once after adding them to the presentation.  Someone please help, I have looked everywhere and have had no luck finding an answer!!!  I accidentally made this happen last week when I was playing around but I don't know what I did and I can't seem to duplicate the results.  I feel certain there has to be a fairly simply solution, something I am missing.  I am working in the most recent version of Keynote (ver 6) and on Maverick OS.

    tspencer74, I have exactly the same problem and it's driving me nuts! I'm heartened that you managed to actually do this even by accident as I've not managed to make it happen at all in spite of much fiddling. So, the big question, did you find the answer? If so can you tell me what it is please?

  • How do I stop multiple videos from loading at the same time and playing while looking at any article on google news?

    Multiple videos load at once and start playing creating sound mess and sucking up ram. This is happening on Firefox on both Windows 8 and Windows 7 machines. This started about three weeks ago. I have run Avast, malwarebytes, hitman pro, and other malware killers. A new youtube setting appeared in settings, I have unticked everything. The videos do not appear to be youtube based.

    You could enable plugins click-to-play. Also, set the plugins to Ask to Activate rather than Always Activate. I also recommend the extension "Click to Play per-element".

  • How do you enhance a bunch of photos at the same time in iPhoto?

    I've read a similar question posted on the communites and there were multiple solutions posted.  The question was posted a couple years ago so I am hoping technology has evolved and there is a correct answer out there.  The multiple answers I've read range from:
    1.) just click on all the photos and then right-click; 2.) buy iPhoto Batch Enhancer 3 from; 3.) that it is not possible, each photo must be individually enhanced
    Which is right???  Please help, thanks!

    No 2.

  • In windows how do we install and activite multiple versions of tuxedo at the same time ?

    Hi All,
    In windows how do we install and activate multiple versions of tuxedo at the same time ?
    Advance wishes

    You can run different versions of Tuxedo on the same server, as long as they are installed in different directories.
    See PeopleTools 8.53 installation manual Task 3-1: Installing Oracle Tuxedo
    You can install Oracle Tuxedo once for each release on a machine, regardless of the number of PeopleSoft
    applications or databases the server supports. For example, if you are a PeopleSoft 9.1 customer and have
    Oracle Tuxedo 6.5 installed, you may install Oracle Tuxedo 6.5 and Oracle Tuxedo 11gR1 on the same
    machine in separate directories. For example:
    On Windows, you may install into C:\oracle\tuxedo11gR1_VS2010 and C:\tux65.
    On UNIX, you may install into /home/oracle/tuxedo11gR1 and /prod/tuxedo/6.5.
