Photoshop flakiness examples

I was chatting with Jeffrey Tranberry on Twitter. He asked me to post details of the flakiness I'm experiencing with Photoshop all the time, every day. While it'd be hard to document ALL the flakiness (oh boy is there a lot), I recorded a video of transforms rounding improperly and of focus not being set on fields when you click on them.

If you give me a place to upload it, I'll share it. In the mean time, I'll describe what happens: I transform a layer and scale it proportionally down to 50 px. Photoshop decides that 49 px is really what I wanted and does that instead. Also, when I do the transform, I click on the height field, realize I want a proportional scale, so click the lock, then click back on height. Focus does not move back to the height field, so I can't type. Click again and focus is set.

I've also witnessed tranforms rounding to odd fractional increments, like I ask for 100 px and get 99.43 px or similar. Makes it kind of hard to use when it doesn't do what I ask.

Hi Brendan, you can either post them here using YouTube (Use the legacy embed code), email me (I'll send you my email address "jtranber") or use a public folder Dropbox (if you're a dropbox user).
