Hi

I´m pretty new in the adobe world and I have bumped in to a problem that I can´t solve by myself. 

 

I want to resize an object by draging the corners, when I have done this earlier i have hold down shift and then dragging to resize proportionally, but for some reason this doesn´t work any more!!

 

I guess that i have by mistake disturbed some setting but I can´t figure out which one! Can anyone help me? It still works form me in illustrator.

In my case updating InDesign and reboot helped. 

another problem I bumped in to today was opacity, but in this case restarting InDesign did the trick

You must also hold down the Cmd key (Mac) or the Ctrl key (Windows) to resize the content of the frame.

Yes I´ve tried that to but it doesn´t work either. Just holding down shift and draging a corner have always done the job before and stil does in illustrator.

What kind of object is it? If it is a single shape, effectively, a single shift drag should be enough. If it is a placed image, you must add Cmd [Mac] or Ctrl [Win]

to resize proportionally object in illustrator: shift + drag

in indesign : command + shift + drag

If this doesn't work try to trash your indesign preferences:

  1. (Windows) Start InDesign, and then press Shift+Ctrl+Alt. Click Yes when asked if you want to delete preference files.
  2. (Mac OS) While pressing Shift+Option+Command+Control, start InDesign. Click Yes when asked if you want to delete preference files)
