It locks the proportions of an element - so if you resize - it will keep the same proportions.

 

Create a Chart - Turn "Lock Aspect" on - and then resize with the mouse - and you'll see it keeps the proportions the same.

 

Think of a 16:9 TV - whether is 42" or 65" - its proportions are 16:9

 

Hope this helps!

You will see the difference if you turn Lock Aspect ON and then resize your visual (element) using the "handles" (I don't know propper term for it in English) in the corner of selected visual. Then try it with Lock Aspect OFF.

See the screenshot. Handles highlighted in the red rectangles.
