    Hi Everyone,

    We have improved the working experience of Free Distort tool. Now the bounding box will not reset! This functionality now is available in our latest release build – 24.1.1 for Win and 24.1 for Mac which is available worldwide now.

    What’s new in 24.1: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/whats-new.html

    You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html

    Thank you for all the feedback

    Freehand was the program for graphic design but it was killed for illustrator :(((((

    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

    Hi Everyone,

    What I dont get though is that it still doesn't do this for free *transform* unless you apply a free distort to it first. Its a bad UX for this functionality
    Corel Draw already had it in 90's... even the "transform each" as it should to be!: interactive with handles, right in the canvas, with just pressing a short key.

    I think 30 years has been enough to copy and improve it. Anyway... don't worry, I'm afraid is too late. Nowadays, almost any of the cheaper design tools out there has it as standard (Affinity is clear example... no dialog boxes or panels) .
