I've been using PS CS6 (Creative Cloud) on a Windows 7 workstation and have liked the feature that shows transform box when a layer or layers is selected. On my new Windows 8 workstation I'm getting PS CS6 x64 configured with my preferences. I'm not seeing the selection box unless I manually invoke "transform" (ctrl+t) on my selection. I haven't found a setting that enables the transform view by default and I'm hoping someone here can steer me to a setting.
Activate Move Tool (V).
In the Options bar, enable "Show Transform Controls".
Thanks so much! Now that I see it I remember setting it before.
