Hello.

I am finding that when I try to move the pivot point to a different location within a selected image, in order to change the rotation point, the whole selection moves, not just the pivot point. As I understand it, it should be a very simple matter to drag the pivot to a different location. I have tried re-starting my i~Mac osx 10.14.6, and re-starting Photoshop 2019. I cannot move the pivot point on it's own. Does anyone have any advice about this? Grateful for any help.

Are you seeing the cursor change from just an arrow to an arrow with a little diamond next to it?

I used to see the pivot point when I did an alt/option click on it to move it.  In the current version of Photoshop CC there is no visible pivot point.  Why would they remove the familiar plus sign which indicated the pivot point?
