Hey there, I essentially need to scale about 40 objects in my scene in place. Each of them needs to be taken down to 75% of their original size but exactly in the same places where they are. I don't care how long it takes to do it, I need to do it, so I'm trying to scale each of them one at a time to 75% or 0.75 Scale. BUT they all MOVE by themselves to a different position in the scene every time I try to use any method of scale other than freehand.
If I use the Move Tool > Scale widget and freehand scale with the yellow box it works (!!!), but I can't pinpoint .75 with it at all.
If I try to type in a value into the 'Scale' slider in the scene tree OR the 3 scale sliders in the Move tool - the object moves to different location.
All of the objects that I try this with scale relative to the center of the scene, which makes no sense because they were imported and then duplicated each one at a time and moved. I've tried moving the objects in the scene tree out of groupings to be at the root level and the same thing happens.
If I click 'Copy Position', then scale and it moves, and then click 'Paste Position' it returns to it's original location but also resets the scale back to 1.
I've tried Global/Local and every switch and setting I can click. Always the same results.
Is there no 'Scale in place' or better yet 'Scale each' sort of functionality? maybe a script? is this a bug or by design?
