I am having a hard time moving anything in a layer that I select. Has anyone encountered this problem? For instance, if I have multiple layers and I choose layer 4 out of 12 and try to move what's inside that layer around the canvas, for whatever reason photoshop will select whatever is in a different layer. I'll have layer 4 selected and when I hold onto ctrl and try to move whatever is in that layer it moves something else on a different layer. I have tried everything I can think of, but I haven't found a solution. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
Sounds like Auto-Select is on. Uncheck Auto-Select, left side of the options bar.
