Text move - after adding border
Ok, I am missing something here.
I added a border on text. I added to alpha, new layer, grow and fill then moved below the text. Looks great.
Then I decided I wanted to scale or rotate, etc....
How can I do that and have the border go with it? I tried merging the layers, thinking that I could do that.

What am I missing?

When you 'link' layers together most transformations will be applied to each linked layer, when you apply it to one.
Transformations can be applied to the parent folder of a Layer Group as well without the need to link the layers within.

RE: Text move - after adding border
Not sure I understand. I had a background layer. I added text. I want a border around the text.
I wanted to do it 3 times...text with a border then I want to expand it and rotate ......

OK, I figured it out....
I created background layer...then added text/Text to path/ Select from Path. Then Select Grow added my border to text and voila!
Now I can move, rotate, etc.....
