Photoshop: Can't move Reference Point while transforming (22.0.1)

New bug introduced in Version 22.0.1 on Mac. While transforming the (anchor) reference point can not be moved by holding Opt/Alt and clicking to a new position. The workaround is to move the cursor while clicking on the new position, then the new anchor point appears at the new position. Clicking once is doing nothing.

Photoshop 22.0.1 on Mac OSX Catalina

New bug with recent update: normally during free transform, option-clicking would set a reference point at the cursor location. This was working with Photoshop 21.

I DO have the reference point visible and I can set it by dragging or any of the corners or centers with the tool bar.

But the option click was best for my work flow.

Same here (macOS 10.15.7). A really annoying bug. I hope this can be resolved quickly – together with the missing ruby overlay while changing brush size and hardness.

Hello, another problem here:

there was always a shortcut to place manually the reference point just with a click ("Shift+Alt+CMD-click").

Now it does not work anymore.

This is an important time saver, especially in huge documents.

Please fix that!

Thanks!

With 20.0.1 update, the define origin point for transform is not working. Only can move visible center point to define the start point.

Same problem here on Windows 10, OS and CC up to date. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB, driver up to date.

Your workaround doesn't work for me. I hope this will be fixed, as I use this all the time...

UPDATE: workaround works! In my search for a solution I had disabled reference point, but now I have enabled it, the workaround works. thnx

As of this most recent release, 22.0.1, the free transform tool (regardless of settings such as 'show reference point when using transform' and regardless of 3d acceleration settings and reproducible surviving a preferences reset), will not allow for a single click to set the transform reference point.  This is problematic for some users, whether it be input challenges or just the fact that you can't quickly and easily set the transform reference point, especially on large objects that require precise manipulation.  This is a cross post from community forums and I don't know if this is frowned upon, but a link to that exchange is here

I wrote a basic autohotkey script to listen for transform hotkey, followed by a ctrl alt left click, at which point it moves the mouse a bit, and back.  Should work for this purpose to more or less restore former functionality without having to fiddle with it manually.

Please fix this Adobe! It's super annoying to have to drag the anchor on large documents, especially knowing IT USED TO WORK.

Here's the current process:

Zoom out. Squint and try to find the anchor. Attempt to grab it without accidentally moving the layer. Drag to the approximate right spot. Zoom in. Drag it again to the exact spot you want.

vs. the old way:

Zoom to where you want the anchor. Click.

Why is this still broken? I need to use this hundreds of times every day and the bug is seriously affecting my work.
