In IJ1 when you hold down the shift key while drawing with the rect or ellipse tools the created overlay is constrained to a 1:1 aspect ratio. That is not the case in IJ2.

Current thinking is that it is OK for the ImageJ2 Swing UI to diverge from the 1.x UI; this gives us the freedom to potentially improve on 1.x's behavior. We can revisit these sorts of "2.x behavior differs from 1.x" tickets in the future as the modern interface becomes more heavily adopted. But it will be quite some time yet.
