    Default Mouse making me crazy

    When I load a piece of clip art and try to squish or stretch it horizontally or vertically it cuts it off instead of compressing it. Is this something in the settings that needs to be changed?

    I don't think it works with the blue handles - there was talk of an alt modifier, but since I use only the old handles that you get when you click on the show selection bounds handles button, I'm not sure if it works any other way...

    ok looks like the alt modifer will do the job without unticking smart transform, but again only in the selector tool

    its a pigs ear.. if you need to do it with the blue handles though, because it appears it won't
