Description joergos 2010-05-05 10:43:00 UTC
I like to use the draw application. Nevertheless I have to report an issue:
after using the "lock aspect ratio"-switch (german: "Seitenverhältniss 
sperren") the lock funcion stays active forever also after switching it off. 

So this function seems to to have a bug.

Please add a step by step description where and when you switch it. Thanks.

I had to draw circles and tried to fix the aspect ratio. I set the "lock aspect 
ratio" same time with some other options, which I can not remember in detail. 

However I have found the solution meanwhile: the function "lock aspect ratio" 
(german: "Seitenverhältniss sperren") is konnected to the Botton "stick to grid 
during creating and changing" (german: "Einrasten / Beim Erzeugen und 
Bewegen"). I will also try to attach an sreenshot.

"Synchronize Axes " in this place is only for setting up the grid  (as you can
see in the header (Grid/Resolution). Thats why it is gone after one setting. It
has nothing to to with the other option
You can have easy temporarily access to "lock aspect ration" by just keeping
SHIFT pressed when inserting an object.

In my opinion this window is a bit confusing:

The interesting function of permant "lock aspect ratio" is connected to the 
botton "use grid during creating and changing". 
Here the function is hard to find, from the botton name one would expect to set 
up an other option.

This is not a defect but an enhancement. I have adapted the summary.
