Photoshop: how to restore the missing edge-transform on a layer

The Problem: Every so often Photoshop will completely loose the ability to re-size a pasted element (layer). Layer 1 can still be selected and re-positioned, but the familiar dotted line and edge-handles for re-sizing your element… have mysteriously vanished.

Attempted solution (incorrect): View | Show Layer Edges results in a fixed blue square outline around the pasted element, which isn’t what’s needed at all.

Attempted solution (correct): The actual way to restore this vital feature has nothing to do with the View menu. It’s actually a tick-box, which appears when you select the Move tool. Tick Show Transform Controls, and you’ve got your familiar layer edges back again…
