Photoshop 22.4.2 MacOS running on Catalina 10.15.7.
Often, when I select something that needs to be transformed, then press "Command-T" (for transform), the bounding box does not surround the item I chose, but instead the entire canvas. I don't know why it happens sometimes and then goes away.
I just painted a shape onto the screen using a brush. Then I pressed "Command-T" and the bounding box was surrounding only the shape. Then I clicked out and back into Photoshop (by clicking on the Desktop) and also off the layer, then re-selected the layer. Then when I pressed Command-T, the bounding box was the entire canvas.
Can this be fixed?
this seems weird. But by the LOOKS of it, without seeing your layers, I would assume you have the white background layer selected, rather then the shape?...... OR its just acting extremely bizarre. And in that case, try restarting Photoshop holding down Command+Option+Shift to clear preferences and see if that helps.
I hope so.
The layer in questiosn is very much not the size of the entire canvas. It is smaller. This also happens with paths that I select and attempt to transform.
If the current layer is canvas size it would be if your transforming the layer.
The layer in question is very much amsller than the canvas. This also happens with paths that I select and attempt to transform.
Looks like your in Quick Mask Mode. Press Q to Exit Quick Mask Mode or click on the Quick Mask icon in the toolbox.
I don't know how I did that, but thanks so much!
nice catch Jeff!
