"Constrain proportions" should actually constrain proportions

Right now, it is not possible to make a square frame that resizes via parent frame. It always distorts into a rectangle.

Even with “constrain proportions” toggle selected, it does not constrain the proportions. To make matters even worse, the toggle only “works” when changing the numeric fields of height/width, which then breaks snap-to-pixel-grid. But then when holding shift and dragging a corner of the frame, it constrains proportions and maintains the snap-to-pixel grid functionality.

I believe a toggle/option in the constraints panel (example: width = fill container, height = maintain proportions) could do the trick.

Yes please. It just seems like it’s doing nothing right now. Would help immensely in doing responsive UI.

To me it’s happening the exact opposite. I want to deform the image and I can’t.

Wow. This is a weird behavior. I vote to have constrained to constrain. This is how other tools do it, if I am correct… so why doesn’t Figma?
