Everytime I change the X axis to 2' it literally only does the x axis and I was wondering if there was a way I could do this proportionally

    $\begingroup$ Can you clarify your question a bit more? What do you mean by proportionally? $\endgroup$ – Denis Mar 25 '15 at 23:19

By left-clicking and dragging down on the sliders you can select and edit the values for multiple axes simultaneously:

Alternatively, if you want to do things with keyboard shortcuts you can press S and drag, that will scale your object (or selected vertices, depending on what mode you are on) in all axes.

To constrain transformations on a single axis you can do SX to scale on the X axis only, or SShiftZ to scale on X and Y only (but not on Z)

    $\begingroup$ That isn't quite working when I tried it actually, I left clicked them all and since I'm preparing this object for a 3D print I tried inputting 3 inches on the x and I noticed that it changed x y and z. I'm more looking for a way to edit one axis and let the computer calculate the rest so it is still proportional to what it was originally just downscaled. $\endgroup$ – William Turner Mar 26 '15 at 1:34
