Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-09-26 19:47:09 UTC
The 'Position and Size' dialog has 2 checkboxes under the heading 'Protect' - position and size - which lock the size or position of an object, and i think is useful to have this in the context menu. This suggestion was primarily targetted as impress and draw, but calc and writer may also benefit from this as well.

A third item that should be included is aspect ratio, which in the dialog is labeled 'keep ratio'.
Comment 2 Buovjaga 2020-09-21 17:36:04 UTC
I think this needs to be re-evaluated
Comment 3 Thomas Lendo QA 2020-09-21 18:55:13 UTC
Adding A. Kainz to CC as he has experience in context menu changes.

As this kind of stuff is only available in the Position and Size dialog, I don't see an big with to have this checkboxes in the context menu.

As you can use Strg to fix the aspect ratio which is very common (inkscape, ...) I would say close this bug as wfm.
Comment 5 Heiko Tietze 2020-09-22 08:31:51 UTC
Besides the aspect ratio, where I agree, this is about having Protect Position and Protect Size in the context menu. Don't find the two properties in the customization so we need UNO commands.
