SHIFT Drag an object shouldn’t maintain proportions ?
I am an able to manually resize an element with constrain proportions.

Pardon me I’m locked with Ai
Shouldn’t use SHIFT

SHIFT drag does maintain proportions. How are you using it?

SHIFT + ALT also resizes from centre point.

You can also turn this on and off by checking the box in the Metrics inspector.

Thanks DBear;
Since I’m influenced by the Adobe CS … the thing I missed that when Constrain Proportions is TURNED ON SHIFT drag does not work !
Thanks anyway

SHIFT is basically a toggle for the constrain proportions so if turned on holding shift turns it OFF and if turned off holding shift turns it ON :wink:
