Mon Jan 23 16:15:36 2017, original submission:

Trying to resize a control by dragging one of its handles as one normally would results in the control stretching to the corresponding border(s) of the containing view (e.g. is the left handle is grabbed, it'll stretch ALL the way to the left hand side of the view it's in, if the bottom right corner is grabbed, it'll stretch bottom and rightward, and so on).

This behavior began the first time I changed the value of the GSModifiersAreKey flag (via SystemPreferences, if that helps). This seemed to fix the issue with the Alt/Option key not being acknowledged when Alt-dragging to create a matrix (i.e. it WASN'T letting me create them). Now, altering the value of that flag doesn't change the behavior one iota.

One important thing to note: it only affects controls that take input e.g. buttons, sliders, and text fields, but not ones that only give feedback e.g. progress bars. It also seems to not affect matrices. Once created they can be resized with no problem.

A workaround, sorta, is to Shift-drag the handles. This makes it act the old way, but has the side-effect of temporarily turning off guidelines.

Restarting the app doesn't help. It seems to have have gotten stuck.

Included are two snapshots, one showing the behavior on a button in a window by itself, the other inside a box.
