For any readers not understanding what makes XFig so hard to get to grips with, it uses a 'verb then noun' structure rather than a 'noun then verb' structure like Corel Draw does.
This means you choose what you want to do before you choose what you want to do it to, ie click the 'resize' button before the rectangle you wish to change the size of.
This is instead of clicking on the object you wish to change then looking for the control to make the change.
