Free Transform not working correctly in Photoshop CC 20.0.0

Free Transform in Photoshop is not working properly in Photoshop CC 20.0.0, which just updated in CC app this morning on my system. I have a large image, I have a smaller "new" image template in another Tab. I Copy the larger image and Paste Into the smaller image template, Select Free Transform, Shift and grab an edge, manipulate and voila, the image is resized into my smaller template and the aspect ratio is preserved. Easy, simple, been doing it for years. Now, all of sudden in Photoshop CC 20.0.0., the aspect radio is NOT preserved, and the image is squished... I just hope this a bug...

To revert to the legacy transform behavior, do the following:

  1. Use Notepad (Windows) or a text editor on Mac OS to create a plain text file (.txt).
  2. Type the text below in the text file:
    TransformProportionalScale 0

  3. Save the file as "PSUserConfig.txt" to your Photoshop settings folder:
    • Windows: [Installation Drive]:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2019\Adobe Photoshop CC 2019 Settings\
    • macOS: //Users/[User Name]/Library/Preferences/Adobe Photoshop CC 2019 Settings/
