Description

Keystone usability is currently a bitch. Sorry to be blunt. :)

When I have move one of the four 'corners' of the keystone, I absolutely want the other three to stay put. Currently, at least one, in 'full' mode even two, other corners are being moved. This makes aligning the keystone rectangle with any feature of the image (e.g. a window, building facade) an absolute PITA.

Please try Photoshop's 'perspective correction' tool or the 'crop' tool (with 'perspective correction' turned on) to understand how such a tool should work.

Most likely I can't get the point, but I can move a single corner.

Robert has a short tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZRSCj0M414. Aroung 1:45 he switches syncronization between the lines off.

I don't use Photoshop so I can't understand "how it should work".

I can confirm this works for me on a new image. I.e. on a new image, it works exactly like Photoshop. Nice. I think the behavior I saw happens when the image has a keystone applied from a previous version of DT. Not sure, I need to find the image which made me file this ticket. :)

But since it matches this title's name: how does one reset the keystone (any) to the default, image border-parallel lines? Double clicking keystone reverts it to 'none', but when I go back to e.g. 'vertical', the lines are at the angle I left them in. Double clicking the lines or corners applies the correction (this could be used to reset it, even per-corner, maybe?).
