I have tons of layers in my projects. So i like to select them visually by Ctrl+click (auto-select is unchecked and mode is layer) It works fine for me with raster layers.
But if i try to select vector layers, this works in some kind of "sticky mode": when i ctrl+click outside surface of vector layer, but close enough (about 5-10px) it do selects. Why ?
Is this some kind of bug? I'dont want photoshop to act like this. More logical for me is to select vector layers same as raster (or smartobjects) when selection made only if cursor is exactly at surface of vector layer.... Any idea?
ps I have windows platform and photoshop CS6 (ver13.0 x64)
It should work the same as for a raster layer. Are the vector layers solid? Ctrl clicking will only load the selection for the solid parts of the vector layer.
Yes this vector shapes are quite simple, created by rectangle tool and of course solid... That is why im confused, cos if i create rectangle vector layer, try to select it with ctrl+click, this strage behavior takes place (i can select it beeng just close to it) if i rastrize this layer, then everything works fine - i can select it only if cursor is precisly inside shape, 1px outside and it wouldnt select...
Where are you Ctrl clicking? In the image, or on the layer icon? You can also ctrl click the Shape layer in the Paths panel with the same result.
