Turn off X,Y coordinates when using move tool

A user in a FB group wants to know how to turn off the x,y coordinate display (as seen in the image) when moving something... something I've never really noticed before, but for me, is useless.   When using the arrow keys, the coordinates do not display.  I've tried al lthe usual stuff in preferences, but suspect it's just an odd keyboard shortcut. 210865684_10220839415960741_5661763637230281776_n.jpg

Hi @Glenn 8675309 , It's a preference setting in Photoshop CC, but not one that's available in Photoshop Elements.  Julieanne Kost writes: "Show Transformation Values — When dragging the transformation handles, the transformation values appear at the top right of your cursor. This display can be controlled via Preferences > Tools > Show Transformation Values (Never, Top Left, Top Right, Bottom Left, Bottom Right)." If Julieanne doesn't give you a shortcut, you can be pretty certain there...

I know of no way to turn that off.  And I've never seen anyone want to do that before.

Welp, I've never said after moving anything "Sure am glad I knew the X,Y coordinates of that cow I copied and mooved (see what  I did there?) to the other side of this photo."   I assume it's always been there, but I've never paid much attention to it (exactely like the cookie cutter tool).

Hi @Glenn 8675309 ,

If Julieanne doesn't give you a shortcut, you can be pretty certain there isn't one - not even in Photoshop CC 🙂

 

Like you've already pointed out, if you use the cursor keys you can move your selection without the transformation values being displayed.
