Photoshop — Disable Auto Transform Handles


I have been living with auto transform handles on my objects for the past week and wondering how to turn it off.

I searched, found nothing.

Then, I found a freaking button I’ve never seen before (clearly):

Show Transform Controls.

Turn it off. Fixed.

  1. Wow…I’ve never ever paid attention to that check box until I had the same problem you did. Thanks for pointing that out. FIXED. Moving on…

  2. Thank you! It’s bugging a couple days now. I must have hit button by accindent. It’s an annoying feature. I work with a Dutch version of Photoshop and the description of this toggle thing is very unclear – I would never have found it 🙂

  3. Gee, thank you! That thing was driving me crazy. Some hours of that was enough for me. Tasks took twise as long because of it. Again, thanks.
