Problem with Array Modifier, Object Offset

Hey guys,
I’m having problems with the array modifier.
I created an object, applied the modifier to it, and now i want to use the ‘Object Offset’ function on it.
so i created an ‘empty’ in the center of the original object.
But everytime i use ‘object offset’ and select the empty, the Array gets scaled and rotated automatically, although the empty is still in it’s original place and scale…!?

Does anyone know this problem, pls i can’t continue my work…


have you made sure that you applied any changes to the object, which has the array modifier on it (ctrl-A)?
