Quick Question about Illustrator and multiple anchor points

How do you scale multiple anchor points in synchrony in Adobe Illustrator? I have Illustrator 8, it's a little dusty that old gal ... but this functionality should be available. Here is a video how it works in CorelDraw:

It is so intuitive, fast and simple in CorelDraw, which is why I'm baffled that I seem to be unable to find this function in Adobe.

Thanks for the help in advance.

Select the relevant anchor points while holding shift then click in the center of the object with the scale tool and pull the points in the desired direction, as in that video.

But that is in Illustrator CC. I don't know when that functionality was added.

I found the problem. The object was in a group without me realizing, which is why I ended up scaling the group and not the selected area.



Your answer helped identifying the issue.
