Also can you please put other things in preferences to like scaling using the shift key and other things that were changed for usability? People that have been using the program for a really long time are used to it working one way and then just changing it to the opposite is really tough to get used to. Would be very nice to have the option to turn these things on or off depending on if I want them to work a certain way.
I. Can't. Handle. It.
I'll be zooming in real close to modify the bounding box of a crop or a transform, tweaking it little by little on a very large image and trying to get it just right when BAM. I accidentally click outside of an invisible boundary and commit. It's infuriating and tedious to have my progress thrown away and have to start over every time I do this.
Double click is one of these. Great in theory but def slows me down when trying to move a text layer. Would be GREAT (dare I say vital?) to be able to turn this off.
Can't even drag in guides while transforming (have to use ⌘-drag from Rulers now).
Adobe, please stop messing around and stop adding so called imoprovements like this without the option to turn it off.
How am I supposed to correct a transform when I click accidentally click outside the transform area? Redo it from start? Make every layer Smart Object first? Come on!
Can any of the coding geniuses behind the terminal command for killing the shift key requirement for transform (and others) find one to kill the rotate commit click blunder?
These new feature is annoying advanced Photoshop users since it hinders our workflow because it's too easy to activate it accidentally when moving things around, specially if you work with a graphic tablet.
Please include a way to disable it in the next update. =(
I held back from using the 2019 version until recently, when I found out I could at least revert to legacy transform creating the “PSUserConfig.txt” file BUT (!!!) that weird auto-commit function is really a pain for long-time PS users messing with their muscle memory!
I constantly commit my transformation without having even transformed anything, because I'm trying to rotate from far away the element like I'm used to for years and years.
Please at least incorporate an option to disable in the prefs to not unnecessarily irritate old users..... it totally interrupts the workflow.
^ This page was recently updated apparently.
Add a new line to your PSUserConfig.txt -
Seems fixed in 20.0.5
They call it Legacy though, as in 'ancient'. Translates to:
"Denoting or relating to software or hardware that has been superseded but is difficult to replace because of its wide use."
I hope you learned from this Adobe. Now please stop adding so called features.
Making this an option in preferences is a no-brainer. Why would you not? There's little cost, and it's potentially disruptive for lots of longtime users. Please do this for all new 'usability' features going forward.
It seems that the ability to rotate using crop and transform tools is limited in latest release. You now have to have pointer within about an inch of the tool boundary instead of anywhere. This makes fine adjustments more difficult. IE moving your pointer 1/4 inch when close to tool versus 1/4 inch when several inches from tool means a much courser angle of rotation.
