    Selecting color layer should select its mask

    EricDuboisMDD Level 2

      In older versions of Photoshop (at least until CS3), clicking on a solid color, gradient or pattern layer in the layer palette selected its mask. In CS5, it doesn't select the mask anymore.

       

      This is inconsistent with the adjustment layer behavior, where the mask is automatically selected, and does not make sense since there is no "image" area that can be edited like normal layers.

       

      It's a little thing but you can't believe how many time I got the "this layer must be rasterized" dialog box since moving to CS5.
