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.

  • $\begingroup$ 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. $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Jul 29 '17 at 22:59
  • $\begingroup$ 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. $\endgroup$ – sambler Jul 30 '17 at 6:51

    $\begingroup$ did you scale the whole object outside of Edit mode? if yes, go back to Object mode, hit CTRL+A and select Scale $\endgroup$ – Violet-n-red Jul 30 '17 at 9:05

Press the button on the keyboard to tell Blender which axis you want to use; X,Y,Z. Select the faces you want to scale, press S and press X to scale along the X axis.

Hope this helps.
