Rotating (Crop Tool) locked layers

Recommended Posts

Maybe this was reported before, but I can't remember. ;)

1. Create a document, make a layer, draw on the layer a bit and lock this layer.

2. Use the Crop Tool to rotate the layer a bit. Release the mouse.

3. Unlock the layer.

Result: The rotation of the layer is instantly reset.

4. Use the Crop Tool and rotate again.

Result: It seems to be that the former rotation angle value is picked up and the layer is rotated instantly by a little mouse movement.

HWA on or off has no impact on this behaviour.

Hi @Joachim_L,

Thanks for spotting this. 

Actually this has nothing to do with the locked/unlocked layer. The crop tool crops/rotate the whole document, not just the current layer. You can replicate the same reset in rotation if you hit the lock icon with no layers selected. Issue logged.
