Crash while transforming Shape Layers in group <bug report>

I've had a consistent crash today while trying to scale a group of simple shape layers: specifically, 2 x 2px strokes making a simple bevelled edge, contained in a layer group folder.


What happens:

1. have two vector shape layers in a layer group

2. Select and try to scale vertically

3. Set height to 4 pixels

4. Crash.


What should happen?

Those simple shape layers should scale with no trouble at all. For some reason it causes PS to crash every time.

I can do a free transform to any vector object or shape layer and scale with no problem. If I set a height or width in the tool bar it will crash.

The vector objects do not have any effects, styles or even strokes. They are just simple filled vector shapes approximately 2 px H X 20 px W.

    I'm unable to reproduce the crash on my end using the steps detailed here in the report.


    Can you record the crash using a screen capture application like Jing and show it to us?

    Thanks for the Video Jeff. It's helpful to see what's happening. I'm still unable to reproduce on my machine.

    Sidenote: Whoa -- the music was blaaaastin -- Getting your daily metal fix, I see hear.


    Back to the issue:

    Can you reproduce this with a new document?

    I've been creating 2 shape layers 1 pixel'ish each, and grouping them, then free transforming using Height as you are there.

    Works for me both with width, and heigth.


    I see the crashes happening on your end though, and is curious.


    Can you post your system info from Photoshop's Help > System Info dialog?


    Is your video card driver up to date with the latest?

    >> That was Ministry, btw. I find it relaxing and soothing.


    I prefer a softer style: Motorhead or TMBG randomness.
