All I want to do is open an Illustrator file and shrink it in half.  

The getscalematrix apparently defines the scaling, but then you have to transform it and I can't figure out how to do that.  

Any suggestion helpful.
---------
Dim IApp As New Illustrator.Application
Dim IDoc As Illustrator.Document
Dim IScale as Illustrator.Matrix

Idoc = Ipp.Open(artpath) 'I open an .AI file here.

Iscale = IApp.GetScaleMatrix(50,50)
   
????Transform it here?  How?
