The text tool opens text box with text aligned to the left. Now I have to waste time changing it all the time. And it defaults to a size I don't use and more time is wasted correcting that.
When using the transform tool it will free transform. but now it keeps proportion, In the past one had to keep the shift key down for maintaining proportion, now it free transforms when holding the shift key down. Please dont change the way these tools function.
* Transform: Illustrator Indesign Photoshop, not the same.
* I wonder. What happens if you transform a pixel shape and a vector shape simultaneously. My brain has to do a lot of extra work while transforming different type of shapes.
* I've got the feeling this 'feature' has been implemented so PS is easier to use on an Ipad. But professionals don't work directly on Tablets.
I've got a complete team of frustrating designers struggeling en getting slowed down in there workflow.
FIX THIS ALLREADY!
If I do this to the 2019 update, will all the other related problems go away?
revert to the legacy transform behavior, do the following:
1. Use Notepad (Windows)
or a text editor on Mac OS to create a plain text file (.txt).
2. Type the text below in
the text file:
3. Save the file as
"PSUserConfig.txt" to your Photoshop settings folder:
Windows: [Installation Drive]:\Users\[User
Name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2019\Adobe Photoshop CC 2019
macOS: //Users/[User Name]/Library/Preferences/Adobe Photoshop CC 2019
The bright minds at Adobe have reversed the functioning of the shift key as a modifier for the crop tool, so that instead of making it a fixed ratio, it makes it free-form. I crop far more often using free-form rather than fixed ratio, so for me this increases time needed for making what used to be simple adjustments. I have used Photoshop since the mid-1990s and I see no reason for this change. Please allow me to revert to the 2018 cropping, much as you allow Classic Mode other functions.
All other Adobe products use shift to set not free the proportions. This is a break with standards that have been in place for decades, and I don't see a good reason for it.
In prior releases, you could resize text with the SHIFT key pressed to keep the aspect ratio correct. As of Photoshop CC 2019, this feature is broken and no longer working. I depend on this feature for aspect correctedness.
Can someone explain why this feature was removed or if this was an oversight?
They said they fixed some bugs... whos willing to try ?
Not Me. I am sticking with 2018 until I hear better news.
Happy camper with v19.1.0
Please read what you're users are saying about your Transform Tool changes:
These changes have made the user experience much worse. There have been several updates to Photoshop, but no address of how to make the changes optional in Preferences. How long will it take you to respond to the issues you've caused many of your users?
We appreciate the new features, but PLEASE do not mess with your core functionality. People use this software for their living!

This was posted by an MVP, but I can’t find the original post.
No sense what so ever on the new transform, just plain retarded after 20 years do they ever ask users what they think, just read the post WTF
My thoughts are, you have a toolbar with all the dimensions and scale options, can't the link symbol button for proportional scaling be the link to controlling this behaviour. When pressed the default is to scale proportionally, if it is unchecked, an object is unconstrained when adjusted.
In both scenarios, the shift key acts as the modifier to switch the behaviour, so when the constrain proportions button is enabled, the shift key overrides the behaviour to one of unconstrained and vice versa. At the same time you could look into enabling the linkage of the 'Toggle reference point' button in the same toolbar, which appears to not currently be referenced when scaling.
If that doesn't appeal, then just give us the option in the preferences to override this behaviour, and as other suggest, make it consistent so once this is also applied to shape creation etc. the setting overrides this globally.
Have been a photoshop user since Ver 3.5 - am very frustrated with the most recent update - and not sure where to send a complaint or request - the transform tool was changed - while some features of it are good and will take time to get used to - you can no longer grab corners and move them where you want - they snap to some grid but I cannot seem to find a way around this - VERY frustrating - and why is this not still do-able??? I am a professional real estate photographer and used this tool OFTEN - now I cannot - I've wasted hours trying to work around this - not at ALL pleased and hope that adobe reinstates the ability to drag from the corners - and no - it does not work by holding shift or command - it snaps every which way but the way you need it to - How do I get this to work the way it did before this update of 2019?? I NEED this ability - this is maddening
Have you looked in the View menu to see if Snap and Snap To are on? They are by default, so could have been turned back on when you updated. I'm not seeing any snapping when I transform, but it does return whenever your preferences get trashed.
Scaling proportionally is ok, I can deal with that, but when you are wanting to use skew in complex ways but the controls are all different it gets really confusing super fast. Really breaks my workflow. Terrible.
Please give us the option to use legacy like you did with the Undo key change.
I didn't realize people have gotten that lazy in the last 20 years. I've been using photoshop since 1998, and holding down shift to resize while maintaining proportions was NEVER an issue. This absolutely SUCKS right now. It is slowing down my work flow, and it is beyond annoying. I don't know who has issues holding down a key, but PLEASE put it back.
