Yellow scale box with off axis objects

My yellow scale box doesn’t align with the selected item? Sorry new to sketch up so may be a simple setting?

The scale box will align with the axes. In this case it is the model axes. You can temporarily reorient the model axes or you could make a component of the selection and orient its axes to align with the sides.

Another possibility is the usage of Fredos plugin FredoScale
