    Auto-select in Photoshop CC selects layers within locked or hidden groups

    0megaequalsone Level 1

      i can't be the only one who thinks it's nuts that when 'auto-select > layers' is selected and i drag to select a bunch of layers, i also select layers that are turned off and/or locked, can i?

       

      i just confirmed that this IS not the case with CS6 -- locked or hidden layers are not selected upon dragging to select exposed layers.

       

      is this a bug, or a bit of new functionality that i am failing to grasp? i did notice that in CC, on right-click there is the new option to "isolate layers", but this seems to just isolate & unclutter layers within the layers panel.

       

      i would greatly appreciate some insight and possible solutions to this issue.

       

      thank you.
