Option to maintain aspect ratio when resizing objects by default
Currently, if you want to resize an object (by clicking and dragging a corner) without distorting it, you need to hold down the shift key.
I would like (at least the option) to have Illustrator maintain aspect ratio by default when resizing, and hold shift to distort.
Even fancier would be an option to set the behavior of the top/bottom and side "handles"... distort vs. resize while maintaining aspect ratio.

Illustrator is not just for handful of artists who make illustrations. For everyone else objects are often times images, logos, other branding elements which must be resized keeping aspect ratio. It can be kept as an option in Preferences if locking ratio happens with/without shift key. With shift key option being off by default.
Just looking for this myself its so annoying and its a feature on Photoshop so why not Illustrator?
