After the new release (CC 20), scaling proportionally using the Shift key no longer works. When scaling you need to click "Maintain Aspect Ratio" button now, which is NOT good as some of the time you want to be able to transform freely and other times you want to keep the ratio - the Shift key was a nice feature that avoided having to hit that "Maintain Aspect Ratio" button every time you need to switch between free transform and keep ratio transform. PLEASE bring it back!!

And also when in the transform mode, the "center" is no longer visible. So when hitting the alt key to move the "rotation center" to another spot, it's no longer visible, so you don't know what you're rotating around...

Scaling proportionally is now on by default so you don't need to hold Shift. Hold Shift to transform freely

That's what I said in my post - it's a default now (the "Maintain Aspect Ratio" button). But what I was after is the ability to scale disproportionately AND proportionately with just holding down Shift as it's always been until this update. It's a big time saver.
