When I try to resize an object while holding shift, Indesign no longer constrain the proportions. It also won't maintain alignment when I move an object, like it used to. I've found this topic on numerous forums with no real solves that have worked for me:
I've tried restarting, closing out all other programs, even deleting firefox and adobe air, trashing my indesign preferences and reinstalling indesign completely. I'm at a loss! can you please help me? without this feature, Indesign is MUCH less efficient.
Are you by any chance doing this with the type tool?
The type tool will change to the selection tool when you hold down Control, and one would think that Ctrl + Shift would work like the selection tool with Shift. But it doesn't - you have to use the selection tool with Shift to get a proportional resize.
I just upgraded my InDesign (I'm on a Mac) and now mine is constraining either. It still works (holding only Shift key) in Photoshop though.
