Cant change video aspect ratio

In Camtasia Studio 8 I could reshape (change the aspect ratio) of video assets I'd use in the background. Camtasia 9 locks the aspect ratio so I cant do this. Am I missing something?

You can hold down the "Shift Key"and drag the re-sizing handles.

Personally in my opinion the option Joe has posted works great and does the same without having to purchase the software the vincentkirkwoodnew posted. I feel this could be another spam post but you al decide.

Completely unintuitive if you've used all the previous versions of Camtasia - but thanks for the tip! I just went from Camtasia 8 to Camtasia 2018 - wow - so different and not particularly better that I can see.

Agreed! Especially the aspect ratio change! Why are software makers across the board seeming to now hide commands and making things less obvious for the user?  I was a Camtasia 8 user as well and I have now spent hours trying to re-learn how to change the aspect ratio when resizing. Guys and gals in Tech Smith, please make this easy and/or more obvious again
