When adding an image I don't see any option to maintain the original images aspect ratio.

    i agree with you. OSISOFT should develop more options on retaining the image resolution, aspect ratio and setting specific sizing for the custom/imported image.

    In response to Zulkifli Mohd Ali, "Have you try to hold the SHIFT key to re..."
    holding the shift key works once the object (graphic library object or custom image) is already on the display, it does not apply to getting the custom image added to the display in the first place. You are guessing on getting the correct aspect ratio initially.
     
    I would also argue that holding the shift key is not the most intuitive solution to maintaining the existing aspect ratio of objects. Many other applications have made it so the most intuitive method of maintaining aspect ratio is by resizing the image on its corner. While the shift key works for resizing existing objects and is found in some other applications, I seriously doubt the average user will go find the mention of the shift key buried in the documentation after they first realize the corner resize method does not work . . . they are likely to come to the conclusion that aspect ratio resizing is not possible.

    It would be convenient if it replicated the behavior seen many other places, resizing from the corner will maintain its aspect ratio. resizing from the vertical or horizontal side is how you would change the aspect ratio

    Agree. What is even more annoying is the aspect ratio is changed when dragging a custom object that is tall and narrow onto the display canvas. One then has to juggle to guess the correct initial aspect ratio, and repeat every time you use that custom symbol.
