Strange, when I create a square image, I can shift+drag to resize the
image symmetrically. This is using 6.3.1.2. In my case, I released the
mouse button *before* shift. I did this with a corner and both sides
(top and bottom). The order of which (shift, mouse) is released does
matter when using anyone of the sides. It does not matter when using the
corner. Release shift before the mouse produces a rectangle. Releasing
the mouse first produces a larger square.

Okay, so now I tested this with 6.2.6.2. Here are my results:
*Corner*
Releasing Shift first: *Square*
Releasing mouse button first: *Rectangle*
*Side*
Releasing Shift first: *Rectangle *
Releasing mouse button first: *Rectangle *

So it's at least possible to drag and release to a square, but the result
is NOT the same as the pre-drawn square that you see while moving the mouse.
I think this feature needs a little more work. It's not a perfect "what you
see is what you get", as far as I'm concerned. Why the pre-drawing if the
result is going to be something else anyway?

 I just retested this with 6.2.6.1 (pre-release from the LO website). I get a square using either side or a corner when releasing the mouse button first. Perhaps this is the difference: I continue to hold down the shirt key until the square is redrawn. It is the exact same size as what it was just before releasing the mouse.

Personally, I still think that using the Position and Size dialog to set the size desired.

Seems to be a bug. Shift + drag in either a corner or a side should work,
and it looks like it works until you release the mouse button. Maybe you
should file a bug report.

Let's say I insert a square or image to my slide or document.
I want to resize it symmetrically,
like let's say I want to make it larger vertically and as click & hold
and
drag down I want it to not just get bigger vertically down but
symmetrically up too; by help of pressing a key.

Most visual editors have this like InkScape or MS office, etc.
(In InkScape you press Shift and drag and it resizes in both
directions.)
Does LO have this? (I've tried searching online and trying different
key
combinations to no avail...)

Thanks in advance,
