Photoshop CC 2019: Transform/Resize is constrained by default - Want ability to go back to legacy behavior

When selecting a layer and dragging a corner handle with the shift (or alt-shift) key pressed, the resize proportion isn't constrained. This started with this most recent update.

Okay, I may not see any reply to this comment. I still have more of the same using PS and it all happened after I downloaded the last 'upgrade'. Nothing but trouble, from presets changing, [copy] [paste] failing and 'trailing' and that's not all. Okay, so the sixty-four-thousand dollar question is do I upgrade again after the pop-up just now? I'm going to wait and look around first. If it 'fixes' most, then yes. If not, I'm going to drink, it is Friday afternoon here and I'm nearly done with it. Good Luck.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Please add an option to bring back proportional scaling with Shift back.

Proportional scaling without holding Shift is breaks custom, present in all other apps of the Adobe suite and is hampering my productivity.

"Use Legacy Free Transform" ??? This is the language you use?
Why not make it mean something?
"Use SHIFT to constrain Free Transform" would have made sense.
Of course, it would have made sense to include this from day one and had it checked by default. Then if anyone wanted to change the way their application worked, they could try un-ticking it!

After 20.0.5 the constrain behaviour does not work on the mid-point handles.
How long has the ability to move the scale centre point been missing? That's a big omission IMHO. Especially when I want to constrained-scale from an edge centre point.

Found a new "Show Reference Point" tick-box in the Options window/palette!
I guess this was another newer addition that came disabled...
