Resizing a group of shapes does not work when using the property inspector
I have a group of shapes that makes up an icon. When I resize them with the mouse, or Shift+Mouse to keep the scale, it works fine. When I use the right-hand panel Width / Height inputs, the sub-shapes seem to move, but not resize. Or, if I change it quickly, some really strange stuff happens.
Version 184.108.40.206 - Windows 10
Ungroup the group of objects. Select all objects and turn off Responsive Resize in the right panel. Regroup objects. Now all objects in the group should scale together.
What the hell is goin on with Adobe products lately?! Is there no quality assurance before droping new updates?
I created a vector shape in Illustrator, I have grouped it and copied it. When pasting it into XD, everything looks good. However when trying to scale the shape down, for some reason my square changes to a circle the smaller the shape gets. I have seen someone else do this on YouTube, and when he scales his shape down, it does not change his shapes. If anyone could please give me some tips on how to prevent this from happening, it would be greatly appreciated. See attached image.

Hi - thanks for the quick response. Seems like I can't post another gif, so i'll try to explain.
Your recommendation to turn of Responsive Resize was mostly right! For icons like this, I just want true scaling, so when turned off both the canvas controls and the right-panel W/H controls work as expected.
There is still some odd behavior with Responsive Resize turned on. Take this quick task:
- On a 20px Icon with some circles and rectangles, resize down to 2px, then back up to 20px
Now, this is probably not a good scenario for Responsive Resize :-) But i'll point out the weirdness. Using the canvas controls (blue box with handles around the group), if I do this, the sub-shapes end up in different places... but they are still circles and rectangles. If I do this exact same task, only I use the right-panel Width and Height attributes, *The shapes themselves are distorted*.
In other words, If I use the canvas controls, the circles stay circles. But if I use the right-panel, the circles turn into ovals.
Overall I'd say this is less of a bug than I originally thought, because I didn't realize Responsive Resize was turned on... but, I still thought i'd share the weirdness. Any way to turn off Responsive Resize by default everywhere?
