Inkscape: scale with keep aspect ratio as default?


Question

I know that I can keep aspect ratio when scaling images by pressing the Ctrl key.

But I really don't like this default.

Is there a way to modify inkscape, to make scale and keeping aspect ratio the default?

I created an issue: https://gitlab.com/inkscape/inbox/issues/1375

When scaling an object with the mouse by dragging the corner handles it is quite handy to lock the aspect ration to preserve it. This is done with a small lock symbol in the top panel:
