When I rotate a bone, the size of the bone changes. Any idea how to fix this?

    $\begingroup$ It looks like the bone's parent is scaled in a single axis, meaning that this bone will appear to change size when rotate against the axis of the parent's scale. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @chris I was close. The bone's parent is not scaled, it's the whole armature that's scaled. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @chris Reset the scale of the armature by selecting it and pressing Alt+S. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Chris, understand that this behavior is normal : your armarture is 2.8 times greater in Z than X or Y. So when things which were in Z come to X or Y, they become thinner. $\endgroup$

I have the fix. It is so easy. Select your rig in object mode and apply the scale with CtrlA > Scale.
