I use Photoshop CS5 and Windows 7.
I need to free transform a layer, each corner separately (holding the CTRL-Key). It's a kind of perspectivistic transformation (mapping cover-art on a 3D-rendering of a book) and the resulting form is not a rectangle. I created crossing guides on every corner of the book so i can do this multiple times quickly and accurately. Unfortunately Photoshop for Windows does not snap to the guides when dragging single corners with the CTRL-Key.
I tried the same on a Mac with CS4 and it worked without any problems. Photoshop snaps to every guide in free transform mode
Please help this is driving me crazy!
What happens if instead of holding down the Ctrl key you pick distort from the transform sub-menu?
(on windows holding down the ctrl key turns off the snap to feature)
Or you can turn off the Snap to feature under View>Snap To and then the holding down the Ctrl will snap to.
Shame on me, I didn't think of that – using "Distort" is a workaround indeed.
I'd prefer to do it with the Ctrl-Key though as its much faster – is there a way to disable "turning off snapping" when holding down Ctrl?
