Can not transform skinned mesh

I have imported a test Blender model with a skinned mesh and some non-skinned meshes.

The non skinned ones can be moved/rotated/scaled with no hassle, but about the skinned mesh: editing the fields in the Transform section has no effect. The actual position of the mesh in the scene is not changed.

Why is this?

The sample model is called tiles.blend and it’s here:!252

Its texture is here (you don’t need it anyway):!253

I found out it did not transform because if the mesh is skinned, i need to transform the Armature, not the mesh directly

thanks anyway
