Photoshop - holding shift not constraining proportions when resizing

I updated my CC today and now my shift button is not constraining proportions.

I have tried it with no other programs open so I don't think that key commends in other apps are affecting it.

This is a big problem! Is this a setting now? Am I missing something? Help!

Thank you Jane. This will resolve everyones issue with this. I know it has been driving me crazy since the first day Adobe pushed this update and I finally had enough. 

 

The only problem with the solution is it's on page 3. Hopefully Adobe moves this to the first page as a Fixed resolution.

Not only a brainless action from Adobe regardless Photoshop and this stupid intent to supposedly facilitate working with the program, but there is much more. The keyboard shortcuts differ a lot from Adobe applications. For example, for years and years Control + D was used for "duplicate" in every Adobe program of the suite. And it's been many versions that in InDesign to duplicate anything one's got to hold Control+Shift+Alt+V. Or When paste in front or paste in back.... or when you use the programs in different language. If the language is spanish, then, for example, Control + A is not SelectAll any more but Open, because in spanish Open is Abrir. Multiple annoyances because they have a lot of programmers that do whatever they want, changing  the commands and the tools... puting a lot of unnecesary functions and removing the useful ones. I just have one word for all of you, Adobe geniouses: YOU ARE SO DAMN IDIOTS. No respect for the professional designers. Sadly, these are the standard tools in this industry and we are slave of you. Thanks God I didn't pay for your mediocre products.

Hi

I’ve been using Adobe products for several decades and Ctrl+D (Cmd+D on Mac) is the one I use most often to show inconsistencies. Here’s how it works in the four programs I use. I have no problems keeping it straight and it’s never an issue for me.

Photoshop: Select > Deselect

Illustrator : Edit > Duplicate last transformation

InDesign: File > Place

Acrobat: File > Properties

 

I’m curious, though, as to how you are using Adobe products without paying for them?

 

Also, this is a user forum,  and we are professionals who volunteer to assist users who have questions. We do not work for Adobe. 

 

There are two ways to go back to the old behavior:

  1. Preferences > General > Use Legacy Free Transform (lower left)
  2. Click the Link button in the options bar for Free Transform to disable it

 

We are always here when you have a question, Makinsky.

 

~ Jane

Came here to say that I rarely use Photoshop (mostly Illustrator) and today was given a time sensitive, EASY project and instead spent 30 min trying to google what the heck happened to the scaling in the Transform tool.

 

This is BEYOND frustrating and unacceptable. Can't believe you have to CHECK a setting to make this happen. You should have to UNCHECK the regular setting because I bet 95% of users do not want their images scaling in wacky ways. It just makes no sense.

 

Also - it's 2020 and this is still an issue they don't care about and haven't bothered to revert back to the original ways.

 

Beginning to hate all Adobe products - it's just a "let's update you every 6 months and move all of the buttons around just for fun to keep you engaged" mentality. I'm sick of these programs!!
