    Unfortunately, you need to use an algebraic formula to 'scale uniform' in
    Freehand.

    The formula is "new_size"*100/"old_size", which in this case is 5*100/3.5

    Type the formula into the Scale transform panel and it will scale to the
    proper percentage (142.86% in this case).

    Create two guides 5 cm apart.
    Align the rectangule to one of them
    Group the rectangule to permit uniform scale.
    Shift-drag one corner to the other guide.
    Ungroup

    (Guides can be created fron a rectagle f.i. 5 cm wide)

    There is another way:

    Create two guides 5 cm apart, snapto on.
    Align the rectangle to one of them
    Group the rectangle to permit uniform scale.
    Shift-drag one corner to the other guide.
    Ungroup

    (Guides can be created from a rectagle f.i. 5 cm wide)
