Free transform tool just stopped working

I am editing an image in Photoshop.  I have selected a region on a layer and press Ctrl-T, and nothing happens.  When I go to edit menu, all the transform options are greyed out.  I literally used the transform tool just a few minutes ago.

 

I feel like I am doing something dumb, but I cannot figure out what.

 

I am using version 23.3.2 20220503.r.458 d8a9c44 x64.  I have a Windows 10 computer with 128GB ram.

If you can share a screenshot of the Photoshop application window, maybe we will see the issue.

Hi @neilm8506696 

It looks like the layer that is selected "Microphone" is transparent (but I'm not 100% positive). Does Ctrl+T work on a layer that has content?

It kind of looks transparent due to the color (very light gray), but it isn't.  To answer your question, I have a couple layers that have objects, and those allow me to hit ctrl-T.  But none of the other layers allow ctrl-T.  That include layers where I WAS able to use ctrl-T earlier today.

I rasterized the two layers that had objects, and now every layer allows me to ctrl-T transform.  I'm guessing that's a bug?
