Alright here's the issue, i imported new textures for a skydome and wanted to re-size the skydome. When i picked the normal scaling mode, it wouldn't let me. thinking something is wrong, i tried scaling a light (make the light range longer) but it did not work either. Then i selected the brush and used the normal scaling mode and non-uniform mode. none of those work. The only way i can scale things is by typing them in. However i much prefer clicking and dragging to re-size/scale. Thanks for taking your time and reading this. I would love a reply with info to help me restore the function i wish to have. THANKS!
