Default A small 'Scale' quastion.

Hey guys, I am a complete noob and there is 1 thing I don't quite know... I am not very good at explaining but when you use for example Move tool then the arrows point up, right and forward no matter how your model is faced.

But when I use my Scale tool, the directions of my arrows (squares?) changes depending on the direction the model (or plane) is facing.

Is this normal or have I accidentaly changed something? I think I have seen an option of this somwhere but i fergot where

Thx

open up the options for the tool and set it to world rather than object. you can get to the option box by double clicking the tools or going to, i think, modify>transform tools...

That option is only Move and Rotate, NOT for scale. >.<
But I just cannot remember...is it by DEFAULT that Scale tool is set to object rather then world or did I just messed something up?

Because if it has awlays been there then I don't mind.

freeze transformations (modify/freeze tranformations)and all the tools will then be set to the world.
