[Solved] Keep ratio when resizing images

Keep ratio
Maintains proportions when you resize the selected object.

As far as I can tell, this does not work. I import an image, right-click the image, select position and size, check the box that says "Keep ratio," and click "OK." I then resize the image, which becomes distorted as sin. What's the scoop?

Cool, eh?

The "Keep ratio" option only affects the dimensions as you enter them in the dialog. If you type 4" for the height, OOo will calculate the appropriate width for that height and put that in the width entry. It has no effect whatsoever on the graphical (mouse) resizing.

If you need that when using the mouse, hold down the shift key while you drag a corner.
