Change the location of the scaling handles

Here’s the thing; Whenever I want to do a minor adjustment with points on the point from which I want to make the adjustment is almost always used for the scaling handle. I must constantly work my backwards from the other direction to get simple things done. I generally work on anything from the points nearest the center of the modeling space and hence have the scaling handles located from the outer side would be more natural. Is there a way to make this a default?

I dont know if this helps but In Rhino 7 in the command line type GumballScaleMode and change its mode from Absolute to Relative, the Scale handles will now no longer go all the way out to the bounding box.

You’ve just made my interface better! Thanks much.

anyone got a way to flip the side of the scale handles? I want absolute, but just on the flip side.
