Legacy Transform is active and cannot be shut off

This is one of two problems that has appeared in the past week or so. Legacy free transform has returned, so I once again have to hold the shift key unless I want to warp what I'm resizing. I tried checking the Legacy Transform box, closing Photoshop, opening it again, and deselecting Legacy Transform.

No change.

Then I tried resetting preferences. No change. 

Is this a bug or have I just encountered a surprising new feature?

Second problem (possibly related; probably not). When I need to save a document and have to navigate to another directory, Photoshop almost always crashes during navigation. The only workaround I've found involves navigating to the directory with a file explorer (Q-Dir or File Explorer), copying the path, and pasting it in to the Save dialog instead of navigating in the normal way.

I'm hoping that somebody has encountered these problems and has found a solution.

Thanks!

PROBABLE SOLUTION:

Wait until Adobe fixes what they broke. The good news is that it works as expected in Photoshop (Beta). It's not advisable to use the beta version for production work, but that's the solution for me for now.

Thanks for the suggestion. That's a long and involved process and, unfortunately, it had no effect. I still have to press Shift to maintain proportions.

I am in the same boat.  A few hours ago, while working, the free transform switched to legacy mode and I now need to hold the shift key down.  I hate it.  and I cannot get it to switch back...

In Photoshop with Free Transform enabled go to the Tool Options Bar and click on Maintain Aspect Ratio.

That's more work than holding the Shift key down. I was hoping that using the Tool Options Bar would somehow create a sticky setting, but the setting didn't stick even between images, much less between PS Sessions. I suppose the dev team will eventually fix this, but it's a significant annoyance.
