I have found the the Opt key stops working periodically, just in the past few months. I reboot and then all is good again.

 

We know that other applications will interfere with the modifier keys, and while I am well aware of that, I haven't figured out which application is causing the issue for me yet. 

 

TL;DR: Try rebooting.

There is now a setting under Preferences > General to bring back The SHIFT KEY Proportional Scale and Transform option. You can go to Edit > Preferences > General and put a checkmark on the "Use Legacy Free Transform" box. That's it.

Hi Moeez Ahmed,

that's a preference with PhotoShop, isn't it?

 

FWIW: We are here in the Adobe InDesign User Forum…
