I just dragged the cloud image onto my drawing and would like to make it longer but not wider.  How can I turnoff the aspect ratio so that I can do this?
I can't find it in the Shapesheet!

The answer is in the ShapeSheet: in the Protection section, you'll find a cell called LockAspect. Change its value from 1 to 0 and that will unlock the aspect ratio.

You can also accomplish the same thing via the UI: first, turn on Developer mode if it's not already, select the shape, click Protection on the Developer tab, and then uncheck Aspect ratio. unlock aspect ratio
