Control the direction a shape resize changes

A daft observation but.... If I create a shape that is 100px by 50px and then in the format section I simply change the width of the shape by say 4px, the shape updates by shifting to the right by 4px while the left side is unmoved. There are times when I need the shape to resize to the left. This applies for example if creating subtle changes to shapes in States where I have to resize, then click on the shape and hit the left key the same number of px shifts to the left. It would be useful to be able to determine the direction the shapes resize?
