When masking, the tool focus nearly always switches to rotate the entire mask instead of allowing access to the individual point(s) I want to select. I have never had to rotate a whole mask and do not ever thing I should need to anytime in the future. It would be very helpful to have the ability to switch this feature off.
This is a total pain, I agree. It really means that very fine masking is impossible. If we made masking work more like After Effects, would that be a good solution? Double-click on a mask to bring up a bounding box to scale and rotate.
