Selecting multiple layers

I'm trying to select multiple layers in the layers panel on a Mac. I normally do 'command-click' and it works to select many layers. Now, it doesn't work. When I click the second layer, it draws a marquee around it. I need to select multiple layers in order to drop shadow many layers at the same time.

    Can you post a screenshot of what you're seeing? Press command+shift+4 and drag over the layers panel, and the screenshot will appear on your desktop. Then come to the forum's web page and use the camera icon above the message composition area to post it here.

    Hi goldie,


    While selecting layer using 'Command click' do not click on the thumbnail of the layer in the layer panel, instead click on the right of thumbnail.


    Also to add , 'Command-Clicking on the thumbnail of a layer in layers panel is the shortcut to select the whole layer as per the PSE shortscut manual. This is wny you are facing the problem you mentioned above.
