Short description of error
[Please fill out a short description of the error here]
In animation it's a very useful trick, e.g. scaling of object from 0 to some value. For example fading behavior. But in blender 2.7 or 2.8 when you scales the object to 0 then you can't restore (can't scale latter).

I think scaling to any value is like zoom in/out or you can think in diff way, but it will be supported i think. The problem is not only with mesh object but anythings...

I think when using G + Number or mouse drag, it multiplies the value. If the value is 0 it's not multipliable anymore.

It should work if you put your value in numerically, under N Panel -> Item -> Transform.

second Panel -> Item -> Transform entring 0 and then any other value dont's scales anymore. You are saying correctly it multiples the values but i think it should be supported anyway??

Oh, i see after 0 values, changing the value in properties panel (N panel) scales correctly.

If supported by directly key S is more nice then this...
