Hi,

Sorry if this was discussed before but I didn't find anything on the subject.

I'm having trouble understanding why resizing single object vs resizing grouped objects differ in Designer. When resizing single object – grabbing corner handles resizes it freely, when holding Shift it preserves proportions (just like in Illustrator). When resizing grouped objects it works exactly opposite – just grabbing handles resizes preserving proportions and holding Shift resizes freely.

This is really confusing and I can't get used to it. Is it a bug or a feature? If latter can someone explain the logic behind it?

Thank you.

Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, @funkmaster3000 :)

The behaviour is determined by the setting under ‘Preferences > Tools > Move Tool Aspect Constrain’. The default setting is ‘Automatic (based on selection)’, but you can change this to ‘Constrain by default’ or ‘Do not constrain by default’.

I feel stupid now for not looking for it in options.

No need to feel stupid! Hindsight is a wonderful thing. ;)

Why would you ... I don't think it's optional in other software is it?
Anyway, I had the same issue, and glad it's there in the options to be changed, as the default behaviour seems counter-intuitive/confusing to me and can easily lead to things being slightly distorted when you're actually trying to constrain them.
