Scaling issue

I went to Objects>Relations>Make Single User to go back and Apply Scale. When I relink Objects & Data everything moves and rescales. Everything looks correct until the relink. How do I correct this?

Welcome to this site.
Take some time to look around and take part, support, and encourage other students.

How and what were you relinking? Which did you select last?

Help us all to help you.
Please give full screenshots with any questions. With the relevant panels open.
Also, include the lecture time and name/number that is relevant to the problem/issue.
This can be done by Blender itself, via the ‘Window’ menu bar top left hand side.
On that menu drop down is ‘save screenshot’.
Close ups additionally where they help.

The object you relink too, is that an EMPTY?
And what is the scale of this empty?

Object and mesh data are two different things!

In edit mode, you can scale the mesh data by a factor of two.
But then in Object mode, you can scale the object containing the data, with a factor of 0.5 and nothing seems to have changed, but it does internally because Blender will use the internal mesh data (factor of two).

The same goes for object relations!!! The parent influences the child.

  • Unparent all child and children objects of the child (relations). Then check and apply scale.
