Just updated to Photoshop CC 2019 from 2018 version. Now when I free transform an object, the center crosshairs are gone. Is there a way to get them back? it's not a huge deal but a personal preference I've grown to rely on.

Thanks

Go to Preferences >Tools  then check "Show Reference Point when using Transform"

Thanks Dave! I have it turned back on, but just noticed another change I'm not used to -- often I'll "free transform" the background layer (or any object) to display the crosshair of dead centre of the stage (or centre of the object) and then drag a vertical and horizontal guide onto the crosshair so that I have guides clearly showing centre of it. Now, when I have something selected with free transform and go to drag a guide, the free transform selection disappears. Do you know if there is a way to prevent that, and be able to keep the free transform selection (and crosshair) visible when dragging guides?

Thanks!

Hi

Just hold shift when you click on the ruler to drag the guide. It will stop the transform from being committed.

Hi Dave,

I updated my preferences to revert to the CC 2018 style transforming and now I encounter this cross sort of... well I don't know what to call it! I would like to remove it if possible as I saw other content creators not having this cross thing as it irritates me while I edit photos, etc... Thanks in advance.Screen Shot 2019-01-17 at 21.46.46.png
