It would be nice to have the backdrop image be able to keep aspect ratio 
when set to 'fixed in view' instead of only stretching to fit the entire 
view...

Hi Tim Cook, you recently wrote in moray.win:

Well, but how would that work? Make it fill the smaller of the
dimensions? That means that if you change the size of the window by
maximizing or resizing, it will change the way the image fills the
view.....

Out of interest, in what particular case would this be useful?

I guess the workaround is to edit the image, adding borders at the top
and bottom (or left and right) edges to have the same aspect ratio as
the viewport.....

Sounds good.

Aye, but I don't change the size of the window all that often, whereas 
having the backdrop fixed in the view would allow me to not have to 
fiddle with borders on an image in an external program to get it aligned 
with the object I'm working on using the backdrop as a reference...
Which is what I would think fixed in view would be used for, yes?  The 
background staying put, so you can pan or zoom around to get a better 
match?  So it changing its aspect ratio in that case is...aggravating.
