about scaling objects

 From:  ello
Hi there,

i just had this idea: what about relative scaling of many objects? for example, you have a number of stair steps and you want to make them thicker.. you select them all, select scale1d, set the initial values as it is now (origin and direction) and now when you scale, every stair step is scaled separately, not as a group like it is now..

maybe it is already possible to do this and i just didnt notice??
