Open new drawing from Quickstarter
>Insert >Picture >From File

You can move the picture and grab the corners and change the size.

Right-click on the picture >select "Position and Size" and you get the position 
and size menu.

The default should be that "Keep Ratio" is highlighted but that is not the bug.
The "Keep Ratio" feature does nothing. This is the bug.

There are 4 sides and 4 corners handles on a picture. On most packages that have 
a "Lock Aspect Ratio" feature, it is easier to get to, ie: it would be on the 
right-click menu.

===> Here is how it is supposed to work:
When Locked, the Keep-Ratio" lock has NoEffect on the side handles.
When Locked, the Corner Handles ONLY move on the diagonals, directly towards the 
opposite corner.

When Unlocked, the corner handles can be moved in a circle or anywhere else.

The analogy bug to side handles would be if side handles were unlocked, they 
would move around in any direction. Side handles normally don't get unlocked in 
draw programs.

The test for a fix is when you change the size of a circle, it has to remain a 
circle when it is changed with the corner handles. It should work on a circle 
"basic shape" and a ellipse "basic shape" but neither will lock.

I tried Circle, and Ellipse and Pictue and none of them lock aspect ratio as 
described above. >Right click > position and size > keep ratio

"Keep ratio" works, as long as it is checked and you chnage the size in the spin
boxes above it. As a work-arround: the SHIFT key pressed, when resizing helps to
keep the ratio.
But nevertheless it would be cool to have this implemented that it works without
the dialog open. And, last but not least, it is not understandable for the user
why this option only works within the dialog.

It would be nice if the default was to NOT have to push shift key to lock 
diagonals. You can ALWAYS change to a non-aspect ratio locked size by pulling on 
one side and then the other side.

Also, why does locking position in the  <right click> position-and-size window 
lock the ratio and size and gray them out? This should not be related to

Reset assigne to the default "".
