Just starting to work with CS6. I click on a path, which shows the path nodes.... then go to the top menu interactive menu bar at the top of the screen to 'click-ON' the checkbox to display the path's transform corner handles.... and discover it is no longer there??!!
Where the heck did they put it? Please don't tell me Adobe deleted this basic and oft - used function and made it a multi-finger, cluster-hump keyboard ONLY command?
Can I get this feature to display at the top menu header bar again?
Thanks Noel.....Wow.... Adobe's idea of advancements always end up as a set-back in another area. Wouldn't you think that it's a common function to alter a path in relation to it's corresponding image? Why they think going through contorted, multi-finger key combos to enact a simple function is user friendly has always perplexed me. They must have an agreement with Carpal Tunnel Surgeons
Seriously - this seems incredibly stupid to me.
Thanks for the confirmation though, Noel.... I thought I had missed something.
That’s not a function I personally miss, but have you noticed that changing a subPathItem’s Path Operation now takes two clicks (or ckick-drag-release) instead of the previous one … restructuring the user interface can sometimes lead to dubious results, it seems.
I agree - the recent changes don't seem to have been thought through with the same level of completeness and attention to fitting in with the existing design as they should have been. I'm sorry if that seems a bit harsh to the Adobe people - no doubt they tried really hard on this recent change to make it look like Photoshop handles abstract things called shapes.
Which reminds me: Have you by any chance noticed how one can remove the Vector Mask from a Shape Layer? (In case one wants to change an existing Layer to fill the whole Canvas.)
The old code for »Layer > Vector Mask > Delete« still seems to work but the menu item seems to have been removed.
No, I hadn't noticed that. Not sure I have a strong opinion, given the other work to create the "shapes" abstraction, on whether that's a bad thing, but I guess if it still actually works the menu really should have been left in, for experts to continue to use. Take it out at some future time when for whatever reason it really can't work.
