R17:Scale gizmo does not effect Instance

Recommended Posts

While using Instances, the Translate & Rotate gizmos affect the Instance, but the Scale gizmo does not.

Adjusting the scale parameters in the Attribute managers DOES work.

This seems odd.  Is it normal?

(R17)  Thanks.

EDIT:  after a program restart, this problem went away.  For now.

That is normal. It is only possible to scale instances in Object Mode or via the Coordinates Manager. That shouldn't change after a restart but maybe the Mode did.

  • Thanks:  I'm almost sure that's what happened.

    --OTOH, it's odd that you can't use the UI in Model mode, but you can use the coordinates, since they seem to change the same thing.  I'm not sure why that's allowed: imo if it were disallowed both via the UI and via the Coordinates manager while in Model Mode it would be more consistent.

    As (still!) a newbie, there's a lot of switches and modes to keep track of.  I have gotten to the point where I automatically check the "Axis Move" switch when things get weird, so I got that goin' on.....  :wackywink:

    Thanks for the help.
