    View > Show > Selection Edges option appears disabled

      Hello...

       

      I use PS CS6 for Windows. When I select a layer by mean of Ctrl-Click on layers palette, selection edges is not shown. When I go to menu View > Show > Selection Edges i realize that option is disabled.

       

      How can I proceed?

       

      Thanks in advanced

          What exactly are you selecting? This will not work with layers that have full document size...

            Hello and thanks for answering.

             

            I remember the all days, when I used PS C3. I added a layer, make some graphics on it and if for some reason I needed to select th whole layer, I just did it by Ctrl-click on it and see how the selection edges appear in the layer. That way, I can modify the selection, for example, if I needed to smooth it or make some other operation.

             

            By following the same procedure it did not work in CS6.

             

            For instance, I needed to draw a smoothed border around the layer.

             

            Finally I solved it by placing 4 guides in each edge of the layer, and then making use of the selection tool, but that is not the idea. The ideal would be to select the layer as I did in CS3.

             

            Best regards,
