Really ??

For me in

     Selecting the text box and dragging it with the mouse moves
     the text box, (plus sign with arrowheads / NSEW cursor),

     Alt scales with mouse driven aspect ratio,
     (diagonal arrow cursor),

     Ctrl+Alt scales with fixed aspect ratio,
     (diagonal arrow cursor),


     Shift+alt constrains the text box to be square,
     (diagonal arrow cursor).
