Photoshop: Problems with free transform

I use PS for digital scrapbooking and all of a sudden yesterday, when I was creating a rectangle shape, the transforming is doing something that is completely throwing me off. When I create a shape or even choose another object on the template, and try to rotate it or transform it, it looks fine UNTIL I apply the transformation. Priot to yesterday, the 8 little boxes surrounding the rectangle would stay attached to the rectabngle when I rotated it. Now, when I rotate it, and hit enter, the rectangle moves to the new position, but the white boxes are going back to where they originally were. How do I fix this??

Go to the move tool, and turn off the "show transform controls" option.

I use those controls all the time for placement purposes and when the boundary box does stay with the object it messes with the items clipped to them when you move them again....
So in essence, turning the controls off does not correct the underlying problem.

What OS are you on? It sounds like you may be seeing a redraw issue. In that case, your video driver may be the cause. Determine what video card you have and go *directly to the manufacturers website (nVidia or ATI/AMD)* and download the latest driver: http://blogs.adobe.com/crawlspace/201...

Just doing Windows Update won't give you the latest and greatest drivers. You must go directly to your card manufacturers website to check for driver updates.
