An issue of Scale (feature not working properly!)


New member
Wondering if anyone else has had this issue before...

I have a complex solid that I would like to scale 113% in the X and Z directions, keeping it the same height on the Y.

In uniform scaling, I can input 1.13 and the entire thing scales up 113%.

In non-uniform scaling, I can input 2 into the X and Z boxes, and it will double its length and width while keeping the same height.

But, when I put 1.13 or 1.5 or any number that isn't a whole number into the X and Z boxes, I get an error and nothing scales. The error flashes by so quickly I don't even have a chance to read it.

Does anyone know how to solve this or why it's not working properly?

Thanks in advance!!
