# [Bf-committers] Mutual dimensions change with proportional scaling

```Hi,

although the current solution is already an improvement, thar indeed some
shortcomings to it, for instance we can't "batch change" several channels
that are not one after the other (say you want to change translate x and z
but not y).
Modo handles this kind of manipulation (vector sliders) in an interesting
manner, although not devoid of flaws either (might be a bit cluttered too)
: http://www.pasteall.org/pic/67223
This small toggle on the edge of every channel slider goes from independant
to copy to relative to proportional when clicked  - the number field is
just for numinput and the arrow at the right end is for sliding.
