Photoshop CC (2015) - Warp Tool Glitch

  • Updated 2 years ago
If I rotate an object (was 45 degrees when I encountered the problem) and then use the Warp Tool, it is mirroring the adjustments. E.g I will move a grab point at the top, but the change will affect the bottom.

Worked perfectly in Photoshop CC (2014) so I have rolled back for the time being.

Hi Simon,

Was your object by chance transformed prior to using the Warp Tool?  I'm not seeing this problem -- what OS are you running on?

Thanks,
David

I have the same problem. Not for every transformation, but does happen to me quite a bit. I've been waiting for a fix for some time now.

It’s happens when you use the Warp tool after using the Distort tool on smart object layer.

To repeat the problem.

1. Rotate layer using Free Transform.
2. Hold down Comm-key (Mac) Ctrl-key (Win) and distort corners of layer.
3. Switch to Warp Tool. See if the problem occurs.

I have created a video to demonstrate the issue.

This exact thing happens to me too. It seems to only happen for place embedded, not place linked.

It happens for me for any layer converted to a Smart Object. Only on drastic angles though

You're right, must not have been extreme enough with my 'place linked' test. So it happens for both linked and embedded smart objects, but only when they've been distorted beyond some threshold.

The only "hack" I have found is to avoid using Distort. So I do my best with Free-Transform and then go directly to Warp. That seems to be OK for now. Although there is much more warping needed this way, and takes more time.

I'm hoping the reason they haven't yet fixed this is because they're finally going to bring this tool into the 21st Century! Seriously, this is such a primitive tool compared to what's out there and especially compared to what's possible.
