How can I enlarge my Path/Tool Image in Gimp? I need it overall bigger!?

I got caught up in my scanned image and didn't think to increase the page size to what I needed it to be before I started my path. I'm using the pen path tool to ink my drawing, and I've put the path on my whole drawing, but I need it to be the full page size. I want to make my path layer larger to fit 8x10, but it will only let me grab one piece at a time even though they are all in the same path layer. Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't want to click stroke and stretch it out, the lines will get thicker and thats not what I'm wanting.

    Click on the scale tool. And In the tool options dialog you'll see 3 small icons across the top. One of them reads "scale path". Click on that.

    Use the scalte tool to scale your path just like how you scale images.

    You can use the scale tool to scale a path. click the scale tool, then in the tool options hit the paths icon, then use it to rescale the path.

    Image (menu)

    Flatten image (menu)

    This may let you work on all pieces on the one layer

    Or if it is a one colour drawing (say black lines on white paper) try

    click stroke and stretch (let the lines get thick. lets say by 4 pixels)

    Then select the color of the line. (black) Everything black will be selected.

    Select (Menu)

    Shrink (Menu)

    2 pixels (on each side)

    Ctrl + I (invert the selection)

    D (delete the unwanted thickness)

    (better places for gimp questions)
