Hi @HalfFast testing here is working as expected.

 

Try resetting Prefs for the Beta:

/Users/yourname/Library/Preferences/ Photoshop Beta Settings (Mac Ventura)

/Users/yourname/Library/Preferences/Adobe\ Photoshop\ \(Beta\)\ Settings (Mac)
C:\Users\user name\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop (Beta)\Adobe Photoshop (Beta) Settings )Win)

Launch BETA Photoshop While Pressing The Keyboard Shortcut

With Photoshop closed, press and hold Shift+Ctrl+Alt (Win) / Shift+Command+Option (Mac) on your keyboard and then Launch Photoshop the way you normally would.

Is this when you are using Edit > Free Transform (Cmd+T)? Look in between the Width and Height controls and find the Link icon. If it is "pressed" the controls work together to constrain. If not, the controls work independently to distort.

Thanks but all that did was reset my settings. Prior to doing that I had found a work around by checking the box in my General Settings for Legacy Free Transform Settings which does work so long as you hold the shift key and use one of the corners to pull from or I can get the same results by clicking the Aspect Ratio chain link. Regardless of whether I hold the shift key or click the Aspect Ratio Chain Link, it still wont constrain proportions when dragging from one of the center pull boxes like Photoshop 2023 does.
