Deformers Reset Drawing Size

Hello! When adding the free form deformer to a drawing layer (which I changed its size with a peg tied to a larger composite), the drawing size resets when selecting any of the tools from main toolbar. How maintain modified size with deformers? Any feedback would be appreciated, thank you.

Check if the peg is above the deformer, it should be above

The peg was above, but the size remained the same. I had to adjust it manually. For other assets, I think it would be best establish deformations to original size first. Regardless, thank you for the info.
