Resize Using Motion Control or Analog Stick Through a Button Combination or By Changing Settings
It is very hard to resize an object to an exact measurement using the d-pad. For example, there have been multiple instances where I have tried to make a puppet a certain height (5 feet 10 in) but I couldn't because the d-pad always makes the puppet either too big (5 feet 11 inches) or too small (5 feet 9 inches). It would be much easier if we could resize our objects using motion controls or one of the analog sticks through either a button combination or by changing the controls in the options menu.
Really, you shouldn't scale the puppet for that but instead using the stretch tool (not in sculpt mode) to adjust the limb sizes.
