Transforming multiple groups CC 2022

Photoshop 23.0.0.

Windows 10.

Select multiple groups as described below. Press Ctrl +T to transform.

Expected: all objects in selected groups transform.

Actual: Only 2 out of 3 shape layers transform. All other elements are unaffected.

 

 

So I've got three groups in my project. They each have a color fill layer, a shape layer, two text layers and an imported image. None of the objects are locked.

 

There are also some background elements but that's not really relevant to this problem.

 

Once upon a time, I used to be able to select all my groups in the Layers panel, hit Ctrl +T and transform them at the same time (not with this document, just in general). When I try to do this, PS only transforms the shape layers of TWO of the groups (not even all three of them, so it's not the shape layers' fault!).

 

I'm really confused and more than a little frustrated by this. I'm including screenshots of before and after I try to transform. I assume it's a bug, maybe someone just moved my cheese but PS is at least trying to transform multiple objects.

Can you post the PSD? That will be the fastest way for us to try and debug. Hard to tell what's going on with the groups undisclosed, etc.

Can you post the PSD? 

Or at least screenshots with the Groups expanded?

Seems to work OK here (23.0.1, though).

Okay, so I updated to 23.0.1. If I select two out of the three groups it works as expected.

 

If I select all three groups by selecting the top most layer, holding the Shift key and clicking the bottommost layer in the Layers Panel, and then hit Ctrl +T  it does what it was doing before, just grabbing the shape layers. This also happens if I hold Shift and select the layers one at a time.

 

If I select all three by holding Ctrl then trying to transform them it works as expected.

 

Note that if I hold shift and select two layers it seems to work okay.

I'll try updating then; it's definitely not doing that for me.
