I need to scale some faces but I want to scale by an exact number I can type in. I can see the values in the top left as I scale the object but I can't click or edit the values as I am scaling the faces. I can't find any other tool settings or properties that would allow my to set the value manually.
Following method outlined here
To scale selection globally in XY by 1.25
S Shift+ Z 1.25
S Shift+ ZZ 1.25
Image above shows local scaling. The global XY axes appear on first ShiftZ, local when hit again.
When using the panel can select and change multiple axes at once.
