Simple Move acts like scaling :(

I have a simple point selection made and I want to simply move it along the Z axis.

But when I move it, using the gizmo axis, the points are scaled down rather than strictly moved.

I'm definitely using the MOVE tool (see image) , and Soft Select is off, so why are the points changing in their relative positions to each other?

I am guessing its because you have a sub division surface on it. What you see in the viewport is the final result. if adjust the points in the object underneath it will have a bigger effect on the final result. 


My guess is if you turn it off for now and move the points it will be as expected and not scaled down.


I dont really model much so I could be totally off.

BINGO!  That's what I get for turning off the SDS cage.  Many thanks.
