New bug introduced in Version 22.0.1 on Mac. While transforming the (anchor) reference point can not be moved by holding Opt/Alt and clicking to a new position. The workaround is to move the cursor while clicking on the new position, then the new anchor point appears at the new position. Clicking once is doing nothing.

Sweet mother of god. Looks like they finally fixed this in the latest update (22.4.2)

check out my autohotkey fix.  It only works one time to set the anchor point but it helps a bit.  It definitely should be corrected.  This is *almost* as bad as the still broken transformation auto confirm when you drag "too far away" from the transformation bounding box.  That was an equally stupid change bc what's too far away?  There is no indication of what's too far away and it feels like its zoom level dependent.  I just realized my link wasn't permanently linked, updated link here: www.smithany.com/psTransformAnchorFix.ahk

Looks like this was reported months ago - don't know about anyone else but being able to click wherever I want the reference point is an essential part of my workflow and super annoying now to have to zoom in and out and drag the point...  Please sort it out!  Wish I hadn't udated now just because of this...

Totally agree Dan, but no need to zoom in or out! Just click where you want the reference point, but instead of releasing the mouse button, just drag it a little and the reference point will appear at your cursor. I'm used to it now, and it works almost as fast as the original way.

Good grief. How many months does it need to take before this is fixed?

I literally had the City of Chicago fix a pothole in less time than it's taken Adobe to address this issue.

I've been struggling with the same issue. Many thanks for the workaround suggestions for this bug. While I'm not seeing the reference point as I do it, option clicking as I'm moving the mouse around seems to work to set the reference point.

(Photoshop 22.3.0, MacBook Air M1, macOS 11.2.3 Big Sur)

Still not fixed in 22.4.

The workaround helps, thanks for that.

But I have to say it's getting more then a bit annoying that I have to come here to look for workarounds for issues that didn't exist in, say, PS CC 2019 or PS CS6.

Can we please get a version without new, shiny, useless bells & whistles which just works, without new bugs, memory leaks, stalls, etc. 

I mean, we are paying for it…

I use this all the time and was really confused when it stopped functioning. I am glad to learn that there is a workaround (during free transform simply hold alt and sliding the mouse a little while clicking instead of just clicking. It is unfortunate that it is not fixed yet.
