[FEATURE REQ] Aspect ratio lock


#1

Hi Balsamiq,

would you please consider adding a feature to lock the aspect ratio of an object when resizing? I could do it with SHIFT key, yes, but right now I would like to change the size of an image to let’s say 100px and keep its aspect ratio - I need to fine-tune it with mouse which is annoying - I would prefer to add a width value and height would change accordingly (basically like in any other app where you can resize objects…):

Thanks!

Ignore - totally missed the point with this response.

Hey @Dan

Once more and in more simple words for you. Of course I know that I can hold the SHIFT key - read my previous post, please.

I’m talking about situation when I want to set specific size of an object and keep its aspect ratio - typically of a PICTURE. I want to have it 100px high. And I want to keep the ASPECT RATIO. So now I need to hold the shift key and drag the mouse very slowly and check the size all the time. It’s annoying. I would like simply enter the value of 100px and the image would resize AND keep its aspect ration. Do you understand this concept?

+1 Always need this… Just updated to 3.4.1 and SHIFT + ENTER doesn’t seem to be working anymore…


#9

Hmm, that’s no good @lazybear. Does shift+mouse drag resizing work for you?

+1 for adding this feature
