Short description of error
[Please fill out a short description of the error here]
Applying scale to small metaballs causes object to jump to big values on X axis.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
[Please describe the exact steps needed to reproduce the issue]
[Based on the default startup or an attached .blend file (as simple as possible)]
I want to create metaball-man made of bubbles. Bubbles have about 5-10 centimeters, so I want to scale my metaball and then apply scale so my textures are applied correctly instead of being shrinked down.
But I can't make metaball to shrink in X dimension. It stays very large. Y and Z scales properly.

With the attached .blend just apply scale and see how it jumps to big size.

I don't have a problem scaling the cylinder on the x axis.Can you try on the latest build.If it is still a bug can you share a video bug because I might being doing the scaling in a different way than you.

@Eitan (EitanSomething) pardon that grabbing but I've spend last couple of weeks in Unreal Engine ;p

What button are you pressing to get the Apply menu. When I right click I get the Object Context Menu

@Eitan (EitanSomething) shift+a, eventually spacebar search menu->apply

It seems like scaling is not applied correctly unless the scale is uniform.
