I want to know if it's possible to scale something in freehand, but not in %. Imagine that i have a rectangule with 3.5 and 2 cm. and i want one side with 5 cm... Scale uniform....

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)
