Resizing sprite while maintaining layers


I am working on a sprite that i decided might look better double size. the sprite has been made from a series of layers to make it easier to animate. and while resizing did achieve a great result that would be easier to add more detail to it, the the issue is that it flattens it after resizing which is a shame. is there a way to resize the sprite and still preserve the layers that comprise it? im trying my best to avoid redrawing it at double resolution. thanks.

How are you resizing your sprite? When I use Sprite > Sprite Sizeā€¦, the layers are preserved.
