Photoshop: Resize handles for Smart Object not displaying correctly on MacOS 10.10 Yosemite

I have been having issues when resizing a smart object, it sometimes doesn't show the smart object handles whenever i try to resize or rotate.
When i hit the corner handle it just blinks and doesn't let me resize, although it lets me once in a blue moon if i keep trying at it.

I am on Yosemite although not sure if that matters at all.

Yup. That's the latest. And do you have the 10.10.1 update installed for Yosemite? I can't seem to repro with 10.10.1 - so I may need more specific steps to get it to happen.

no i don't have the latest version of Yosemite have been putting off updating that I'm currently on 10.10

Thanks for helping so far, its not that big of an issue i just have to keep clicking the corners till it catches so its not like a huge issue just really enoying so thanks for helping so far xD

edit: Btw this happens mostly with items that are bigger in pixel size than their smart object form (does that make sense?) like taller inside the smart object than it is while being used as a smart object.

Ok. Let m know if you update to 10.10.1 and if it solves the issue.

Ok so i guess i found a solution. Haven't updated yet, but talking about it in here made me realize that trimming the transparent smart objects to its tightest size fixed the resizing issue.

Which kind of sucks if you have to hidden layers in that smart object having to go in and resize anytime you want to enable those hidden layers for other reason. But i guess thats a work around, thanks for the help.

Do you have a file that exhibits the problem consistently? If so, can you share it?

I won't share the file that I'm having the issue on since it's work related but i made one with the issue consistent on it.

After first resize try resizing it again and issue should come up. Unless you go into the smart object and trim the transparent pixels.
