    Bug: Hidden Paths Disrupting Layer Selection

    HowardPinsky ACP

      I'm experiencing a possible bug when attempting to Command+Click a layer in my document to turn it into the active layer. I've included a short video to help better demonstrate the issue.


      If multiple shape layers are present, including a layer with a 'subtraction path', the hidden paths of the layer that's been subtracted from effects auto-selection. If the hidden paths overlap another nearby layer, Command+clicking on the nearby layer actually selects the shape with the hidden paths.


      The expected behavior should be that the hidden paths are ignored, allowing the user to select the layer underneath, like it was in CS5.


      This is very difficult to explain in text, so please watch the attached video.
