Very glitchy Free Transform tool
This sure can't be right - I can't always get this to occur, but when it does happen, it's super annoying. When scaling using the Free Transform tool, there's this choppiness that doesn't allow me to control the scaling. Right now, my best work around is to enter dimension values in the Control Palette rather than use this tool at all. In the video the choppiness during the text object's decrease in size is where I'm undoing the scaling. I don't know if that helps, but maybe it will help to know that the choppy scaling is done in steps rather than in one smooth motion. I'm using the tool without letting go of it, so there should be no time when the tool stops scaling. Please fix!
