Gaussian Blur does not scale. Frustrating
Gaussian Blur does not scale when I scale an object with the effect applied.
'Scale Strokes & Effects' is turned On.
Really frustrated because it's such a simple thing to recalculate it. Fix asap!
I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 25.2.3 which is available worldwide now.
Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.

Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!
Ton, with further experimentation, I find this method (Effect>Distort&Transform>Transform) ONLY changes the EFFECT, but NOT the object itself. For most of my current projects, this would be virtually worthless, and still a big time-waster. So yes, it is definitely a bug that needs to be repaired, with all scale dialogs.
Michael. I totally agree, it is a bug that needs to be fixed.
Ton, thank you for being so SPECIFIC. This DOES indeed work! (Unfortunately, there is no copy option, but that's not the end of the world.) I might have never found this buried, arcane and buried way to make Gaussian Blur scale properly, so thanks again!
However, this still needs to be brought into working properly with normal everyday scaling. The choice to scale effects is right there in the regular scale dialog, and in the Object>Transform>Scale Dialog as well ... but Gaussian Blur FAILS to SCALE in two out of three dialogs, each of which states that effects will scale (but they do not). This is why it still needs to be FIXED, IMO.
Michael, the blur does not scale when any scale/transform panel is used.
But it does scale when Effect > Distort & Transform > Transform... is used to scale.
It SHOULD do what you say it does, but IT DOES NOT.
Sorry, Ton and Egor, but this DOES NOT WORK.
Using "Transform" does NOT scale Gaussian Blur properly, EVEN when scaling strokes and effects are SELECTED in Preferences, AND in the scaling dialog. This is a HUGE time-waster, to be required to MANUALLY change blur amounts, sometimes in HUNDREDS of places in an illustration! It NEEDS to be FIXED, finally.
It scales only when the Transform Effect is used (with the Scale Stroke and Effects option checked).
Christopher, it will, if you check Scale Strokes & Effects in Preferences

Gaussian Blur radius in as Appearance "fx" doesn't seem to scale when the object is scaled
