oh, delete its history first
it should work

edit>delete by type>History

unless you need those 2 non-linear deformers that have been applied to the cube.

im having a similar problem


when i combine polygons the scale tools pivot is not align to world axis so when change scale the object streaches in
the wrong way distorting the objects original shape
, so how do i align pivot to world axis

i tried freeze transformation, deleting history, center pivot,
and all the settings of scale tool

the same thing happens for move and rotate tool


here a top view and perspective view print screen
