Constrain crop under the lens distortion/transformation tool currently imposes an arbitrary aspect ratio on images. It would be useful to have the constrain crop maintain the original or specific aspect ratio instead of some arbitrary aspect ratio.

If you don't choose an aspect ratio, Constrain Crop preserves the maximum usable amount of the image. If you want an aspect ratio then choose one. It's only 2 mouse clicks.

Hmm, in my tests, Transform with Constrain Crop maintains the current aspect ratio of the image. Can you provide detail steps of how to reproduce the issue?  Or better, a screen recording?
