Hey there, Illustrator Experts, is there a way i can enable Transformation of images/Objects in Illustrator 2021 without the need to press the Shift key (i dont want to press shift key ) , i'm used to Corel Draw where you are not required to press Shift key so that you can scale an object without being distorted... Thanks for your feedback

Turn on Smart Guides is the closest you can get. Then when scaling, you get a visual clue when you are scaling proportionally.

You may also use the Free Transform tool (default shortcut E), turn on the Constrain button on the Free Transform widget and drag one of the four corner handles.

That would be perfect if I didn't have to turn on the Constrai every time.
