This solved nothing, and made things even worse. Needless interface changes disrupt productivity, I can't tell what is a bug and what is a "revision" whose only purpose seems to be to throw stumbling blocks at users.
A recurring issue with Adobe is that they like to change interface and key commands and stuff with new versions, and another recurring issue is that the engineers and programmers are NOT users who rely on consistancy.
And yet another issue is this habit of releasing buggy, clunky betas as if they were ready-for-primetime.
I got as far as the Free Transform filter, only to discover that they reversed the controls. Selection is now constrained when you grab a side or corner, it won't transform freely. Unless you press the Shift key - which is what you used to do to constrain proportions. It;s like they switched the gas and brake pedals on a car!
TWF is wrong with these guys?
