Transform Again function not working correctly with Smart Objects

Hi all,

 

This thing is driving me crazy for a while now and I can't seem to find anyone else complaining about it. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong here. 

 

When trying the ctrl+alt+shift+T function to transform again a smart object, it behaves absolutely unrelated to what the transformation was. This is not the case for any shape or a rasterized layer. These work exactly as advertised.

 

So again, my process is (with the move tool selected)

1. select a layer (smart object)

2. ctrl+J

3. ctrl+T

4. nudge it with arrow keys for example

5. hit enter to accept the changes

6. hit ctrl+akt+shift+t

 

..and it starts jumping 20x bigger leaps then I did or starts nuding to the right horizontally with no regard to what the input was.

 

From what I can tell it's been going on for more than a year now and it was not fixed. Does anyone have any info on how to make it work again like it should? It would be much appreciated.

I can replicate your problem when using arrow keys to nudge, Photoshop remembers and use last transformation before nudging Smart Object, otherwise everything works as xpected.

Hi Bojan,

 

Naturally I tried both nudging a Smart Object with arrow keys as well as entering values via x / y boxes. In my case it still doesn't work.

It seems like a bug. I just tested one more time and Edit > Transform > Again is simply not available, grayed out when transforming Smart Object layer: nudging, rotating and even when scaling. This is definitely bug since it is not only on one machine and it should be reported.

It seems that option was never available, from my examination Transform Again never worked with Smart Object Layers, I just tested with CS6 and found this thread https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/smart-objects-suggestions

Can you confirm this option ever worked with Smart Object layers as with other types like pixel based layer?

All smart object layers have an associated layer transform. When you use Ctrl+T one a smart object The current Transform opens and you can edit the transform, like you can  nudge using the arrow keys..  There seems to be a bug in at least CC 2019 with Ctrl+Alt+Shift+T for some smart object layers it seem to not be available the shortcuts does nothing.  However with other smart object layers  the smart object layer is duplicated and the associated transform does get nudged. I have not tested other versions of Photoshop. The bug could also be in other versions as well.

Still broken in Photoshop CC 2020 (v21.2.0).

 

Transform Again (Ctrl+Shift+T) and Transform Again with Duplicate (Ctrl+Shift+Alt+T) usually unavailable for Smart Objects. I have to create the desired transformation on a non Smart layer, then switch back to the Smart Object to apply Transform Again\with duplicate.
