I'm trying to scale a sketch in one dimension. Somehow Solidworks was doing it before and I didn't even realize this. Then Solidworks crashed and now I can't figure out how to do it.
dimension in 2D dwg or 3D model?
3D Modeling in SW is done 1:1 scale, you adjust the model scale after it is completely modeled if needed..
This isn't AutoCad where you always need to mess with sketch line scale, again SolidWorks is 1:1 ratio
Are you sure that you were scaling the sketch? Because I don't think that you can scale a sketch in only one dimension.
You can scale a body in one dimension though.
You can also "Stretch Entities" which is (kind of) like scaling in one direction.
When you use toolbox to create a part, the dimension appears to be big then you can resize it in the tools>options ... see below image
it's the only one I'm aware of
One workaround would be to make a surface from the sketch and scale the surface.
After that, you could export and re-import the surface so you could move it to the top of the feature tree and use it as a template for restructuring your original sketch.
What if instead of scaling the sketch just modify as needed parameters of the sketch (dimensions)?

Are you using Sketch Blocks?
Can you attach an example file where this would be useful?

Ooh, good one... I didn't think of blocks....you CAN scale those....but can you scale them in 1 direction only?
