If I want to scale something in the X and Y (but not Z) axis, I use the middle reference point:
And I always believed that if I hit SHIFT, it would change the scale proportionally but because I was using the middle point, still do X and Y… But I realised today that when you hit sift, it scales on all 3 axis, irrespective of which point you click…
So without thge shift, the Z height stays the same… But the object grows/shrinks on the X/Y axis… But when I hit SHIFT, the object grows/shrinks on ALL axis.
What I want is a way to proportionally reresize the model on the X/Y but NOT Z.
I know I can do this by rescaling and then typing a number in the Measurments box (i.e 1.5,1.5)… But I would like to do it using the mouse so that I can scale the object by eye…
Does this make sense? Is there a way to do this?
