Just updated to ID 2021, and now the shift key no longer constrains proportions or keeps what I'm trying to move on the same X or Y axis? This is absolutley frustrating! Any ideas, or a bug?

Reboot your computer. Launch InDesign before any other program and try again. It will probably work.

 

Sometimes other applications or extensions interfere with modifier keys like the Shift key. You may need to do some testing to see if there are browser extensions, anti-virus apps, etc. which might be causing this for you.

Virus protection is a common culprit, as Steve mentions. If you are using a virus protection utility, look for "Pause Secure Keyboard Entry" to allow use of shift key in Indesign.
