What's New in Goldfish 4.4 Part 8: Constrain Proportions

In this series, we will show you interesting new features of Goldfish 4.4. Today: Just a small thing, but there is a new option to keep proportions when resizing any item.

At the moment, you can already hold down the shift key when resizing to keep proportions. Because many users did not know this, we decided to extend Goldfish here.

From Goldfish 4.4, there is a small improvement in the form of a new option in the project properties. Maybe you know similar features already from other apps.
  • The option "Constrain Proportions" keeps the aspect ratio of an item when resized.
  • When you enter a value in the fields for "Width" or "Height", Goldfish automatically calculates the appropriate value for the other field so that the aspect ratio will be kept.
  • If you press the shift key in addition when resizing, The option "Constrain Proportions" reverses. That means, the proportions are kept when the option is not active, and they are not kept when the option is active.
All this and much more is part of our website layout program Goldfish 4.4. Goldfish 4.4 will be available soon as a free update for all existing customers. You can now download and use Goldfish 4.4 in a beta version:
