Can I transform a layer directly?
Hello, I would like to know if there is a way I can transform a layer by manipulating the layer itself.

For instance, I can select Layer-->Transform-->ArbitraryRotation, and then use the mouse directly on the layer, giving me a "realtime" vies of the rotation.

Is there any way to do this with something like the "Scale Layer" function, so I could transform a layer directly, while seeing in realtime the difference the scaling makes?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Oh wow, you mean it's been sitting in the toolbox staring me this whole time? I've been wanting to do that for over a year now, wondering why it wasn't in the menu!

Thanks nuts, it is much appreciated.
