Photoshop: Give us the ability to change the value inside the "Show Transformation Values"

I could be alone in this boat, but I would absolutely love it if the Move Tool [Default (V)] could be tweaked/customizable. For instance, being able to change/edit/scale the measurements inside the dialog box adjacent to said Move Tool. Because right now? You can't do jack with it and for me? That ability would be extremely useful...Hopefully it might get looked into as an idea. The more customability? Especially for something as in-depth as Photoshop? The better. But that's just me...

What dialog box are you referring to?
What measurements?
As written, this makes no sense.

What I mean is you know how you can go image>analysis>Set Measurement Scale? (I'm currently using a custom scale that is "Pixel Length:12 = Logical Length:1) in essence making my Ruler Tool measure in feet. So if under Ruler the L1: says say 16.00 I know that means inside that line is 16 feet long. What I wish I could do is inside the "Contextual Transformation Values" that can be adjacent to the Move Tool could be able to be scaled as well so it could match my rulers 12 pixels = 1 foot. Understand what I mean? Right now you can't change the values inside that box attached to the Move Tool. I wish this wasn't the case.

Do you mean the free transform tool, if you have "show transform controls" enabled in the move tool?

No, I don't. I know exactly what that does and that's not what I'm talking about. I merely wish they had it set up where you could adjust and scale the measurements inside Contextual Transformation Values. Like a "Set Measurement Scale" ability like the rulers have. Pretty straight-forward idea that would come in very handy.

Again, you're still not making sense. There is no dialog beside the move tool or tool options. I have no idea what you are referring to.

Dude I don't know how to be any clearer. I'm talking about in Photoshop CC, when you go Edit>Preferences>Interface inside interface under Options you have that drop-down pane that's called "Show Transformation Values" *That's* the box I am referring to. There is currently no way to set the measurement scale inside that box like you can for the Ruler Tool. That's what I've been talking about this whole time. Is it really *that* hard to understand?

That isn't a dialog, and isn't numbers you can use or change -- they're just a readout of your current transformation.

And yes, you are using all the wrong words and failing to describe or show us a picture of what you were talking about. So yes, your roundabout description was quite hard to understand.
