Repost from another forum post (I was told to repost over here).

Photoshop Beta, version 25.2 (latest)
OS: Windows 11

Troubleshooting steps:
- I have uninstalled ALL adobe products, rebooted and reinstalled. Still same issue
- Reset prefrences on quit

Steps to reproduce:
1. create new project
2. Select Rectangular Marque Tool
3. Select an area on the page
4. right-click, and chose either Free Transform or Transform Selection

5. clicking and dragging on the handles does nothing, not even rotate works.

The only way to actually transform what you have selected is to change the values in the top bar, or by clicking on a vector (X:, Y:, W:, H:) and dragging.  Grabbing and dragging the box handles do nothing.

This works okay in Photoshop Beta 25.1 and the current version of regular, non-beta, Photoshop.

I am having an issue where when I select an image or object on any layer with the move tool and resize or rotate it, as soon as I let go of the mouse button, it locks it in place...

Photoshop Beta

By @LCS Marketing

 

This is a known issue in Photoshop Beta and the developers are aware. I have moved your post from Photoshop to the primary thread on the Beta forum.

 

Is it also an issue for you in the released version of Photoshop?

If I resized an object, I can't move it without applying transformation. And when I move an object, I can't resize it without applying changes first.

 

They are not working together.

What is the point of updating beta 25.2 to 25.3 when the problem persists? Beats me.

Hi, I am using Photoshop Beta,

since yesterday free transform option working well without any problems but today all of a sudden I can't do it. when i try image for the first time working well, but only once. When I click somewhere other than the image and then click it again, it won't let me move, transform, or resize it.

When I do it with Ctrl+T, it lets me do it but only once. Then I need to click somewhere outside of the image again and then click again and ctrl+t to resize or move it Once again and it goes like this.

I think I figured out a pattern on when I can re-size my text box and when I cannot.  It seems as if when I click directly into the text with the text tool it will let me resize.  However if I double click on the layer to make the text editable then it will not let me resize

They just updated so it might be fixed (im updating to 25.3 right now) but it seems only right click function doesn't work, the menu options still work for both of those commands if you go through the top menus, also the corresponding menu keyboard shortcuts work as well like ctrl+t (only right click options aren't working).

Can you comment on which tool is selected when you do this, and how you initiate the transform command? And are you holding down the control key to select and move the object after resizing it? This latter behavior can be affected by the "AutoSelect Layer" setting on the Arrow (Move) Tool.

I don't know why my comment was removed... but as i said, you can get the functions to work through the regular menus (edit>free transform or select>transform selection) when the right click functions aren't working. For people who are stuck because of this, it may be helpful to know they can still work using this workaround rather than assuming the functions are broken and impossible to work with until the bug is fixed. There is no working once and it breaks again as some have reported issues of being able to make one change and then it's locked again. Make your selection and go to menu>select>transform selection and you can drag it all you want over and over, same with using menu>edit>free transform. If my comment is deleted again, it would be nice to know why since this seems like it could be very helpful for people who think their workflow has been halted (or if they don't want to have to go to regular PS with different history/recent files/etc just to get a couple tools to work).

(after posting again, my first post appeared, didn't intend to double, and now triple post, maybe was a cache issue and wasn't showing an updated page until i left the new comment)

Yes, it solves the issue to use the menu and not the right click. Thank you for the temporary fix!

Olá... versão Beta do PS na ferramenta M ( seleção )

 

Quando cria seleção e clica com botão direito do mouse... e escolhe a opção no Menu > Transformação Live  ou Transformar Seleção ( fica desativado para redimensionar a seleção )

 

Na versão PS do v.25.1 funciona normal
