This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop CC 2019: Transform/Resize is constrained by default - Want ability to go back to legacy behavior

For the love of god can you PLEASE give us back the old behaviour ... or at least the choice. This is doing my head in.

While I am at .. this forum utterly confusing, where is the reply button to a post ? I have to keep making new posts because there doesn't appear to be a simple reply button. I find this forum to be the most frustrating/confusing to navigate that I have ever used.

There is a way to revert it to the old behaviour. https://youtu.be/I532Bd61UF0

No I agree. But it's not dodgy. The issue is that the ability to revert it is present... There just isn't any GUI for it.

The nice part is that if you do the fix it reverts all the stuff, even removing the limited range the cursor needs to be in to rotate stuff.

Oh I completely get that. But this is where I draw a line in the sand. I have had to dodge my way around so many stupid Adobe changes. This one I want to be done officially.

Agreed. They need to officially change it back.

This change was obviously not instigated by someone that's been working with Photoshop for over 20 years.  It's incredibly frustrating.  Please, Adobe change it back!

I also find the forum hard to navigate.  Illogical...  which is concerning.

You can click on Comment next to Like in an ongoing post, or just look for an empty field that says "Write a reply" in faint glyphs.  '-}

Yeah the comment thing I get ... but I seriously cannot find anywhere to comment directly on posts.

You don't see that there are two empty boxes (look on someone else's thread, maybe, not one you've started)? One is comment that goes directly to the poster above you, the other is outside of the "tree structure" where the comment goes, as if you're a new poster. There is no button for it. Just the long rectangle and quiet letters inside suggesting you write a reply.

It is kind of weird. You can have all these conversations inside the conversation, so locating how to respond to a particular individual can be difficult, but I've always found at the very bottom of the thread the Write a reply box. Otherwise, comment is there to reply to the post above, the way I'm doing now and you did with me.

That makes it a branch off the main conversation, but if I wanted to reply to something Rob Lundy said replying to your reply, I'd have to either quote him in the main section (bottom of the entire thread) or drop down to the bottom of that branch and choose to comment.

I'm not saying it isn't very strange, though.<G> I agree that it's not like most forums I've ever been in.

This conversation is no longer open for comments or replies.
