    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

    I'm working with Illustrator for 10 years now, and I never found a useful tool to replicate Photoshop's "Free Distort" tool. A tool that lets me distort a graphic object through the 4 corners of its bounding box, which doesn't use a pop-up window (so I can see what's behind) and doesn't automatically expand its shape when I release the mouse.
    So far I found 3 unsuccessful options:

    1) "Envelope Distort" using "Make with Top Object", where top object is a rectangle that encloses the graphics.
    It would work, if it were not that the 4 corner points get automatically bezier-ed, creating that "'70s psychedelic text" effect . If you convert the points by removing the bezier, a strange fish-eye look comes out.

    2) Free Transform Tool (E)> Free Distort.
    Perfect, it looks like it! Too bad you can not move a corner without distorting the other 3 ... Instead of the "Done" button as on PS, here, as soon as you release the mouse, the shape is somehow "expanded", making it useless.

    3) Effect> Distort> Free Distort.
    Finally, I can work on the 4 corner points individually without involving the others and without bezier distortions.
    Too bad the interface is a tiny pop-up window (REALLY???) , I can't enlarge it, I can't see the whole artwork, what if I have to match the distortion with something in the background?
