Photoshop 2020: The handles of the warp-non-corner-points still snap to 90 ̊ angles on editing

I know that problems of the Warp-improvements that were implemented with CC2020 have already been discussed in other threads, for example 
https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/adobe-photoshop-2020-problems-with-new-warp-t...
, but I think this one might merit its own Feature Request. 

Many people use Warp to be able to relatively easily fit graphic designs to the surface of non-flat objects. 
The ability to manually add divisions when Warping should have improved the ability to emulate the curvature of objects but the handles of one (non-corner-)point snap to 90 ̊ angles when one of them is moved (see screenshots). 


By no means do I want to belittle the effort that went into the improvement of the Warp-feature but as it is it seems to me to miss the point of the original Feature Request/s on the issue considerably. 
That the two respectively opposite handles are directionally locked seems acceptable and even desirable in many cases but the »perpendicular« handle-pairs should in my opinion be able to be manipulated independently.

Bump. 

The Feature Request has not been implemented properly so the »Implemented« marking over on 

https://feedback.photoshop.com/conversations/photoshop/photoshop-adjustable-grid-size-for-the-warp-tool/5f5f44fc4b561a3d422ddf96

seems like an exaggeration to me.

I can't believe I haven't seen more complaints about this in other places. Who would even need the Warp tool to behave like this? It makes it essentially unusable for me. Incredibly frustrating.

I share that frustration; for now whatever resources went into adding the additional grid options to the Warp seem (to me at least) to have been wasted. 

Which is a pity …

Makes no sense to have the warp tool.
For me, makes it unusable.

Hi,
With this post, I would like to report an issue.
When using the warp feature, it's currently not possible to move the handle up or down on a point located on the outside of the warp mesh, without damaging/transforming the warp edge. This is very frustrating. We should be able to move the handle up or down, and retain a straight vertical or horizontal  edge. The adjustment should not affect the warp edge. Please fix this. 

Thanx

Note: This comment was created from a merged conversation originally titled Not possible to move outside warp handle up/down without damaging outside edge

Indeed, indeed, … the Feature Request on additional Grid Lines in Warp was either implemented wrong or some random mistake happened prior to release.

As I mentioned …

The Warp improvements in Photoshop 22.5.0 seem disappointing to me. 

That opposite handles cannot be locked in diametrally opposite directions and the corners that come into existence right quick mean that the feature continues to be less than ideal for certain tasks.
