# How Do I Shrink/Fatten Selected Along The X Axis?

I know. I know. I would have to select the shrink/fatten tool in tools or press ALT + S. I did, but it only shrink/fattens along the Y axis, but not the X axis and it is really peeving me off.

• Make sure Pivot point is not set to Individual Origins (set it to something else, e.g Median Point with Ctrl+Coma). Also please add some screenshots to your questions, guessing is always something preventing success. – Mr Zak Jul 29 '17 at 22:59
• Shrink/fatten 'scales' based on the normals. A standard scale S can be restricted to a single axis. You can also scale on only two axes. – sambler Jul 30 '17 at 6:51
• did you scale the whole object outside of Edit mode? if yes, go back to Object mode, hit CTRL+A and select Scale – Violet-n-red Jul 30 '17 at 9:05
