How to restrict scaling to certain axis?

(sparhawk) #1

Is it possible to restrict the scaling to certain axis so that the scaling occurs only i.e. in the X direction and all other directions stay the same? When I press x/y/z while scaling nothing happens. The only thing I noticed is that the coordinate flips its sign, but on a different axis then I pressed. I didn’t see any differences though.

hold down the alt key and then move mouse in desired direction then click and drag to finish scaling.

You can also hold down the center mouse or track ball button instead of the alt key.

The ALT key doesn’t work, but the middle mouse button does what I want. Thanks. Should have thought of it. :slight_smile:
