I can't find any useful information on using these settings
effectively. I don't consider myself stupid or a genius but I think you
might need a degree to make sense of these controls. I realize that
explanations are provided but it's still very cumbersome and confusing.

I always wondered for instance why you can create a perfect circle with
the Ellipse Select Tool, but converting it to path gives horrible
results. To make a perfect vector circle I have to use a shape path
plugin and enter coordinate and radius values which is time consuming.
There really should be an easy way to make a simple vector circle.

Anyway, I thought it would be a huge improvement to select a few key
controls that make the most useful differences and give the user an
intermediate set of sliders with meaningful names and explanations. If
it was possible to preview the results live it would truly be a
impressive tool.

Something along the lines of the design philosophy of the new
Transformation Tool.
