    Move tool broken

    carsonikey Level 1

      Here's the situation:


      I have a layer selected. Using the move tool, I click on my canvas and drag to move around the current selected layer. This is how it's always worked for me. A few days ago, something else started happening. No matter which layer is selected, when I click and drag with the move tool, it automatically selects and drags around the layer that I visually clicked on. If I hold command when dragging, the move tool behaves as it did before and I can click where I like without having to worry about selecting a unwanted layer. But I don't want to always have to hold down the command button.


      Any suggested fixes would be much appreciated. Thanks!
