Hey there, something i would really love to have an update on is the free transform tool on the warp optrion. It splits it up into a grid which you can push and pull to get a great result most times. But what would be great is if you could have the option to move individual points in tandem - ie. the object is split into a grid of 9 boxes, 2 vertical lines and 2 horizontal; if you could grab all the points on one of the vertical axis and drag them up at the same time or drag them sideways at the same time.
The other thing is there is no option to drag just one point on an exact vertical or horizontal like any other tool where you hold shift down to drag in a straight line. If these things were made possible, it would really save me alot of time.
Would anyone else find these changes useful?

Illustrator has updated their Free Transform tool in a way that MIGHT help you with this a little.

I'm not sure why they don't treat the button in the tool pallet like every other tool, but if you click the Free Transform button or press 'E', you'll get a tool pallet pop up. Again, i don't know why you can't just select these tools individually like any other tool... took me a while to figure out this one existed.

go to the Last one Free Distort.

this will give you some new control that might help you get the results you are looking for.

means you may need to jump back and forth from PS to ill and back again, but it's something.
