Constrain proportions (aspect ratio) when resizing numerically
The ability to constrain the proportions of an element, but change the dimensions, say width, to an exact number value.
You can constrain proportions for objects directly via a lock icon in the property inspector.

@Tom Krcha I can't seem to find the lock icon.

Great rec! And guys responding to this post, seriously.... Captain obvious.
while at it, can we be consistent with other adobe products and use math in then number lines? IE.
W 150...if i want to double it easily i just enter W 150x2....or if i want to divide it by 33% I could just enter W 150/33.3.
One final consistency item would be to allow us to mouse over the W or H letter and simply drag and scroll, or use the arrow pad to increase/decrease the values.
I love adobe, but its very fractured from app to app in consistency. would be great to see it all tightened up universally.
Was just about to suggest this. Glad I did a search first. Thumbs up to this.
this feature should be in your MVP dudes
For me as well a key featured I'd like to see in Xd :)

There should be an option to lock object to the size
Currently I have to edit both width and height fields each time I want to change the dimensions of a rect / circle. Linking the shape width and height would halve the effort

I agree with Lily — this is a huge oversight, in my view, because it forces [pro designers and veteran Adobe users] to use the mouse for precision resizing. Looking forward to seeing that little chain icon in future versions.
The dimensions section is somewhat pointless without having the ability to lock the aspect ratio of an object. It would be great to have this option just like all other Adobe programs do.

There is yet no way to know or control the information of any objects (if they're a 100% sized). It would be great to have this somewhere, and be able to scale the objects by a precise ratio, rather than by the eye. A scale tool or a transformation pannel yes.
This is sort of a standard feature in all the adobe programs, it's so very fundamental and crucial. Please add it to XD.

change a value of a component size while maintaining its proportions

…and the corresponding keyboard shortcut for drag-and-drop operation, ie `Shift`.

I'd rather describe it as "Lock aspect ratio" Particularly important while resizing images as you don't want to affect the aspect ratio.

Checkbox to scale with ratio in dimensions section

Want to be able to resize element using percentages.
