Fixing the Photoshop CC 2019 Scaling and Undo Shortcut problem

I would like to call it as a problem, because it is a very annoying “problem” for the advanced users. Normally, as we have used to scale a layer, if we scale it with SHIFT key, it scales in proportional, otherwise it scales freely. But Adobe (even though I have searched for hours to find the main reason), changed it!

Anyway, of course now there is a solution for it. (But probably we have to do this again and again) when we got update if Adobe find a constant solution for it. (Like adding a checkbox to settings)

To revert the weird proportional scale back to “lovely normal cute” mode;

1 – Open a Notepad and write this text inside;

TransformProportionalScale 0

Now save this file as;

and save it to;

Windows: [Installation Drive]:\Users[User Name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2019\Adobe Photoshop CC 2019 Settings\

macOS: //Users/[User Name]/Library/Preferences/Adobe Photoshop CC 2019 Settings/

For lazy people, they can download the .txt file from here 🙂

If you also would like to back to legacy Undo key options;

From the Menu, choose Edit > Keyboards Shortcuts.

In the [Keyboard Shortcuts] and [Menu] dialog, select [Use Legacy Undo Shortcuts] and click [OK.]

Now when you restart the Photoshop, your shortcuts will come back.
That’s all folks! You got your lovely nice cute Photoshop back! 🙂
