New update has all my settiings messed up!

Trying to work tonight and I feel like giving up!  My images/tabs are all sticking together and even disappearing on me.  No matter how I set it in Wiindow/Arrange, it does what it wants to do which is mostly attach them all together like a magnet.

Also, I have these little blue lines around everything popping around like a pin ball machine!  Very distracting.  Where can we got to officially complain? And please help me fix these problems.

 

BTW  Will the problem with the transform tool be solved soon?  Bad enough we don't have an undo button, now no transform control button.

It might be easier to understand your workspace and document windows issue if you showed us a screen shot of your entire workspace.

 

The blue lines are called Hover Layer Bounds.  This Page shows you how to use them.

You can turn them off in the Options Bar

Can you be specific about your Free Transform Issue? AFAIK it is working OK.  Least ways I am not having any problems.

Try two preference settings: "open as tabs", and "enable floating window docking". Turn on or off as desired.

(not at my machine, so can't remember exact wording).

Thank you, the hover bounds have been removed.  🙂 The free transform feature used to have a toggle button on the tool bar.  Now we have to go to settings and click it on each time we need it. This was discussed in another thread.

Now, can you please tell me how to keep my images from combining?  I want separate tabs like it was before the last update.  There must be some setting for this but I can't find it.

Why not just hit ctrl-T when you want to transform the selected Layer/s? 

»Show Transform Controls« has seemded to me quite a problematic setting for a long time and the fewer people use it the better as far as I am concerned.

Screenshots attached.  I have tried almost every choice there but my tabs/images still won't stay apart.  If I move one the slightest bit it will combine with another tab.   Could it be a workspace problem? Or could it be fixed in Preferences?

Please post meaningful screenshots to illustrate the issue, not snippets. 

I do not understand how the images are tabbed or otherweise distributed on your screen and how that differs from what you want.

@pslane1   That doesn't help at all.  We need to see your full workspace.

 

I am still confused as to what your issue is.  Are you saying that you are unable to use Consolidate all to Tabs?

Are you refering to floating your windows perhaps?  It's just not clear.

 

Explain in more detail, and show us screen shots, and tell us what you think is wrong with the windows in your screen shot

Okay, I'lll try to explain.   The first screen shot shows how the tabs/images are "stuck" together.  The second shot shows how I want them to be.  I can change it with Windows/Arrange/ Float windows but it just goes back to the "sticking together" as soon as I move an image too close to another.  So is there another way in Preferences to change this to stay?  Before the last update, it was like I wanted it.

The first screenshot seems to show the expected arrangement for »Cascade«. 

Under which version was it different?

What are your settings for the Move Tool?

Edit: Sorry, @Trevor.Dennis , I had missed that you had elaborated on those settings already.
