How do I get photomerge in Photoshop to work on anything but automatic?

Whenever i have an image that won't stitch automatically, I try to use "reposition" as the option, as well as "collage" and "perspective", but none of them seem to work at all. By that I don't mean that PS does a bad job, but that it doesn't even try. For example, when I try "reposition", I expect a dialogue where I position the pieces and they snap in place when PS sees a match, but no matter what I do, PS automatically tries to position them, and if it can't I'm never provided with a dialogue to reposition them. It just fails.

Way back when, before PS CC, when photomerge failed to align images automatically, you could select "reposition" and then PS would allow you drag and drop the individual images into place, and PS would then attempt to align them, and they would snap into place when PS recognized a matching pattern. But at some point this stopped working, and for years now none of the options really mean anything, as the only thing that works is automatic. 

Is there something I'm missing? Am I doing it wrong? Or do none of these options really work?
