    Can't select layers with transparency

    Knirp Level 1

      Hello all!


      Some things just happend and I have no idea why.


      1. I can no longer nudge grouped layers. Photoshop complains that it cannot nudge layers in a group. I'm pretty sure I have done this many times before, so I guess I'm doing something wrong here.


      2. When I try to move a layer selected in the layer panel (or selected via ctrl-alt-right click), a click on the layer selects the layer effect above instead.

      It seems like there is some kind of click through enabled. If I click on a transparent part of the layer, the layer below get selected instead.


      My first thought was that this had something to do with "Autoselect layer/group", but it's disabled.


      This drives me crazy, how can I go back to normal mode, so I can click anywhere in a layer, transparent or not, and move the items in it etc?
      (I'm using Photoshop CS6.)


      Thanks in advance!

          1) Is a Selection active?

          What is the exact meassage?


          2) Could you please post a screenshot with the pertinent Panels visible?



          Are Photoshop and OS fully updated and have you performed the usual trouble-shooting routines (trashing prefs by keeping command-alt-shift/ctrl-alt-shift pressed while starting Photoshop after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved and making a note of the Preferences you’ve changed, 3rd party plug-ins deactivation, system maintenance, cleaning caches, font validation, etc.)?
