I have photoshop elements 9. When I go to click on a layer to move it, the layer disappears or moves to an obscure location without me moving the cursor. I have tried restarting the program but it does not seem to work. Any suggestions?
If you move a layer below a layer with no transparency in it--i.e., the whole layer is opaque, it will disappear since what's on top covers what's below it. If that's not what's happening, try deleting the preferences: quit the editor, then restart it while holding down ctrl+alt+shift (command+option+shift on a mac), and keep the keys down till you see a window asking if you want to delete the settings file. You do.
