RE: [XaraXtreme-dev] UI question - constrain

Alt does nothing during transform drags.

Thinking about it though, it might make much more sense for Control to
toggle the aspect lock state temporarilly during transform drags than
it's current function!

Currently, the Control key modifier (which is supposed to mean
"constrain" in drag operations) constrains the scale factors to be
integer so that you get exact size multiples of the original object. If
you want to get exact scale factors that's probably better done using
the scale edit field in the infobar and I bet 99% of users don't use
scale constrain...

What does ALT do while resizing in the selector?
