Make the Free Transform handles visible / reachable while zoomed in to your image.
In Free Transform, when you are working zoomed in and close to the edge of the window, the adjustment handles often end up being pulled out side of the window where you can't see them. Hitting cmd+0 zooms out the window so you can now reach the handles. The problem is when your trying to make small delicate adjustments to get square up a door, or line up elements. Zoomed out to reach the handles you can't see what your doing. When you zoom in to make the small adjustments, now you can't get to the handles. It would be really helpful if I could use the hand tool to move the image until I see the handle when zoomed in.
Have you tried the Space Bar?
Mark, I think he means he wants some way to stay fully magnified while in a transform bounding box, but to be able to rotate from within rather than from outside the box AND to have a way to grab corner control points while inside the box. This is something I've asked for too. It would make accurate alignment much easier because you can stay zoomed in and se better.
