Free Distort Bounding box doesn't follow shape
I know this isn't a bug, but it definitely feels that way. The Bounding box when using the free distort reset back to the initial shape and doesn't follow the shape you are shaping, Which makes it virtually impossible to make fine tuned distortions. The way it works in Photoshop is the way it should be.
I see people have complained about this for YEARS!
I cannot see a single use case where the current way is preferable.
And using the effect Free Dstort isnt anybetter, since you don't get a visual representation on the artboard of what you are doing.
Please ADOBE!! fix this

Thank you for all the feedback
This has been missing since the beginning.. seems like such a basic option. .you can sheer, scale, even trapezoid but not freely. this needs to be added

This would make my life so much easier.
This would allow the ability to 'map' the object easily onto an image/object without guessing. Free Transform tool doesn't do it.
