why would my transform handles be missing?
I`m using the V tool but no handles are visible..
Just press Shift+CTRL+h on your keyboard. That is shortcut for showing/hiding layer handles.
thanks very much imeilfx!
You are welome. If you have any more questions - don't hasitate to ask.
Thank you! But why would they just turn off suddenly??
Thanks a lot man. I've spent half an hour trying to discover it
Shift+COMMAND+H on mac 😄
Also available in either OS under the View menu > "Show Layer Controls," for folks who don't like hotkeys!
Is there a way to selectively hide layer handles? I'm trying to get a handle on a composition that has layer bloat...
If you're looking to hide controls for specific layer types, then yes.
Under View > View Options, you'll find a variety of ways to fine-tune what's shown.
If you're wanting something more specific than this, you're looking at some third-party tools. Many of these have semi-overlapping functionality, and not all are directly relevant to your question, so just providing a list of possible options for workflow woes:
Another thing I learned since posting this is how each view can have it's own view options - which seems pretty useful. And that you can open another viewer if you want more than 4 views.
Sort of a follow up question : is there a way to have more than 3 custom views? I've been using different cameras as a kind of work around... thanks !
No, it's shift COMMAND h, not control
