Short description of error

Planar scale handles of scale gizmo are extremely sensitive. Since scale sensitivity is modulated by the distance of the mouse cursor from the center of the scale gizmo, and since planar scale handles are very close to the center, it is absolutely not possible to perform subtle planar scale tweaks, as the sensitivity is out of control even when moving mouse cursor by one pixel.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. In a new .blend file, select default cube

2, Switch to scale tool and scale the cube on any planar axis
3, Notice the planar scale sensitivity is much higher than when scaling individual axes by dragging handle ends or scaling uniformy using the outer ring.

Result: Planar scale handles of scale gizmo are extremely sensitive
Expected: Scale sensitivity modulation based on the distance of mouse cursor from the action center is disabled for gizmos, and used only for legacy 2.79 style transform tools.
