CS6 on Mac: Layers in certain folders are not selectable

Aug 5, 2013 7:30 AM

Tags: #bug #layers #select #cs6

The problem occurs when trying to select a layer on my canvas that is not in the folder I am currently working in.


So let's say I have 2 folders named folder 1 and folder 2. When I'm working on some objects in my document that are in folder 1, it all works. Yet when I try to click and select an object on my canvas that is located in folder 2 I won't be able to select it. As if it would be locked. When I go to my layers pannel, and click on 'folder 2', It normally selects all the layers in that folder and I can select everything in there. (Until I click on something that is in 'folder 1, in which case I won't be able to select any object on my canvas again.)


It almost seems like a preference, but I haven't been able to find anything that warrants this as an (annoying) feature.


Any help would be much appreciated.

    I haven't been able to re-create such a problem. Are you able to select any object on screen no matter which layer it's in? One object is selected at a tie unless you use the shift key to select another at the same time.
