how can I keep the stroke proportion locked while scaling a shape layer? [more info inside]

Hey there!
So I have a simple shape layer with black stroke applied on it and the whole layer is on draft quality mode so I can control the pixels better.
I'm looking to scale it vertically and horizontally but keeping the stroke size the same.
This gfycat will explain it better:

you see how the stroke expends?, my goal is to keep it the same :\


Thanks in advance!

Scale the shape itself and not the layer. Make sure your stroke is happening after the shape layer's transformation. Shape layers are really powerful, this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Thank you, do you know if it is possible to make the "rectangle path" anchor point to be as the layer's anchor point?, trying to change it with the pan tool doesn't snap to corners for some reason.

never mind, it won't accept it anyways, you know if there's a way to expand it only to one side using values and not manually with the mouse?

There are several ways to do that.
