I would like to extrude & scale the outter edge of my letter like this :

Like This

but Actually it looks like this ...

:(

I have no clue how to do it ...

Also there is another problem, if I scale a mesh is there a way to deactivate the z axis ?

  • $\begingroup$ I think the linked answer is right, but you have first to extrude the object along Z otherwise the Shrink/Fatten tool doesn't work right. You can delete the duplicate geometry afterwards $\endgroup$

To deactivate $Z$ you can scale pressing S followed by Shift + Z.

$X$ and $Y$ will still scale. Also the transform panel have little lock icons that you can toggle to lock different properties (like $Z$ scale).

I'm not 100% sure, but you can try Alt + S to scale along normals.

For the text you can use the offset value:
