I wanted to create a square shape so I hold shift and left mouse button to draw it, and it seems like I have a very strange bug. The shape on the screenshot is the result of shift+lmb - clearly not a square. So I tried to set the size manualy but, as it shows on the screenshot, apparently AE thinks this shape is 272x272 pixels. I tried to create new compositions, re-open program and create comps with locked aspect ratio to 1:1 but nothing worked.

Check your screen resolution, or your display card, there's nothing wrong in your proportional square drawing as you're showing the values.

Hope that answers the question
