Hello,

I'm aware that the shift key feature in Free Transform has changed since 2019 and I'm ok with that.

Meaning - without holding shift key, proportions stay the same ... with holding it, proportions change.

Here is the strange thing:

All of a sudden it went back to the old behaviour / the opposite...?!?!? ... pre 2019

In Preferences "Legacy" function is NOT checked.

 

Any Ideas?

The second place to look is in the options bar after you hit Cmd+T. There is a link icon in between the Width and Height controls. When it is on, the W&H are proportional; when it is off, they distort. Try clicking it to toggle the behavior.

Hi Jane,

that's it!

I had to look first ... options bar changes with every tool.

But, yes, the little link symbol, which is usually "on".

That did the trick.

 

Thanks
