Photoshop: Why doesn't an object stay in transform mode when I'm trying to use guides?

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop 2019: Can't create ruler guides while transforming a layer

Now whenever I use rulers/guides to find the center of an object/text box while it's in transform mode, it exits out of transform mode so i can no longer see the center of the object for the guide. I'm assuming this probably happened since the last update when auto-commit was introduced. Can we please bring back this ability? Quite annoying when i'm trying to get a center guide for objects not in the center of the artboard.

With Rulers open, hold down the Shift key to drag a guide over onto the object. That works for me on Mac, High Sierra. Should work for you, too.
