Tools that resize spline sub-objects in regard to their first vertex, one with a scaling factor, the other using a fixed size.

Additional Info: 

Scripts to make the Recomb From Splines tool (Hair And Fur) easier to use.

Handles of Bezier and Bezier Corner vertices are resized as well to maintain the original curvature.

If Use Spline Selection is checked and no spline sub-objects are selected, all of them are resized (as with the option unchecked).

Note: with the 2nd script (SetSplinesLength), the results won't be correct if the shape have been previouly scaled. Apply a Reset XForm first.

If one day it rain and you are boring, do you plan to add some tools :
- show actual size of selected spline before modify it
- separate x , y and z scales and length...

in fact, it is very cool to give a spline a size (1.2 meters for eg.) and not just double a size that we don't know.
I have archiviz in mind.

You need to have spline sub-objects selected for the selection option to work. If none are selected, they are all resized.

Not sure what you mean by 'scale size in unit'.

It would be great to have a scale size in unit :-)))
