I'm facing this problem: I want to extrude the 4 vertices of a plane along the normal to the face.

The operations I perform are:

· Add > Mesh > Cube

· Scale > X > 0

· Merge > By Distance

· Delete > only Edges and Faces

· Extrude > X

As you can see from the screenshot when selecting X I'm not able to see any extrusion, while it works if I do on Z or Y.

Any clue of the problem?

I'm using OSX, Blender 3.1.

Thanks. enter image description here enter image description here

If you are scaling a cube by 0 that means that any coordinate on X axis will be 0,

because any value x 0 = 0. Scale cube in edit mode.
