Suggestion: Keep aspect ratio option when resizing winuae in windowed mode

Yes, keeping ratio and getting window to desired size is pain in butt. You either gotta risk broken ratio or you must manually calculate desired 4:3 resolution

I guess it would be nice in some situations but I can't simply replace current free sizing. It needs to be optional and I am not sure where the option fits..

Well "4:3" along with other aspect ratios are under "Filters" so shouldn't it go there if Toni actually decides to implement?

Done but because I still don't like options for everything possible, currently it activates if CTRL key (either one) is kept pressed when resize operation starts.

Note that it does not care about Amiga aspect ratio, it simply keeps current window aspect ratio. Result should be identical.

Good! Would you consider having the default keeping aspect ratio and CTRL for free sizing, favoring "safer" behavior over more advanced use case? For example more and more word processors are going this way when dealing with images.

In my opinion it would be too surprising change to old default.
