Problem with Scaling in Unwrap Editor
show user profile  PairofMittens
Hi all!

Hopefully one of you might be able to help me with a problem I've been having.
I've just started getting into Unwrapping, and have found that the scaling tool does not work properly in the Editor. Rather than scale it by uniform size, both axis are scaling as I 'drag' the icon either down or up. I've tried to change the scale tool from the drop down at the top, but they both do the same thing. Any advice on what to try?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

use the freeform gizmo
scale one axis+ shift
scale uniformly+ ctrl
plus if you press alt at the same time it's like you're doing the same on the other side at the same time (faster)
rotate, move without changing gizmo

alt on rotate in freeform mode snaps it to 1 degree- even with angle snaps turned off
sometimes handy to know

Huh, didn't know about the 1 degree rotate. How could I have missed that?
