Do you mean like Free Transform already lets you do?

Unable to transform slices or smart objects by pixel other than percentage, unless i'm missing something?

Yes, you just haven't changed the units at all.
Type in a physical size (ie: "2 in", "8 cm", "72 pt", etc.) instead of a percentage, or just type in a pixel count "124 px".

Thanks that works, it would be good to be able to view as pixels as default or switch, was expecting it in properties as well, but i guess that has the original artwork size.

Free transform doesn't work on slices but i have found you can double click on the slice edge with the slice selection tool, it would be good if Free transform could affect that too.
