This bug seems to be happening consistently -- when I rename a layer group, Photoshop CS6 resets the color of all the layers inside the group to "no color" (including in nested groups).

I'd noticed my layer colors defaulting to None, but didn't bother to figure out why.

Finally noticed.

Your carefully color-coded layers, inside of a Layer Group, will lose their coloring scheme if you change the Layer Group's name which they're grouped into.

To avoid: "un-nest" layers from Layer Group, change Layer Group name, then nest layers back in Layer Group.

Hmm. This appeared to be fixed in 13.0.1 according to our bug tracker. Investigating what happened.

I can see that this thread is already a year old - but I've just recently got Photoshop CS6 Extended and noticed this bug is still not resolved.

Version no: 13.0.1 x64 (part of production premium)

Pete Green, are you still aware of this bug?

Anyone at Adobe, has fixing this bug reached your roadmap yet? It's 2016 and we have Photoshop CC now. I know 4 years is not a lot of time on a geological timescale, but for a software product is seems a bit long.

Imagine you have a very complicated layer and folder structure packed inside a parent folder, all neatly arranged and color coded. Imagine now you do one accidental click. All the color coding gets reset. It's fine (well, not really) when you notice it right away and can ctrl+z, but you usually notice it quite a few steps later, rendering the action undoable, so you start to consider ditching the whole layer coloring concept.

Once again, please, fix this annoying bug.

This is still live in CC 2017... Maybe this will help... I can reproduce this bug 100% by double-clicking the layer name, then (whether or not I type anything) clicking out of the layer name to deselect/lose focus. It DESTROYS all the label colors in the layer and any sublayers all the way down the tree if it's layer group.

If I rename a layer and use the "Enter" key to deselect the layer name text box, it does not change the label colors.

I hope that helps narrow down the issue so it can be resolved.

Hello, Jefferey!
How close are we to fixing this bug?

Again, it's 100% reproducible – double-click the layer to rename it, then click somewhere else to cancel the action --> the whole layer structure gets it's color-coding reset.

My workflow gets severely impaired by that, I would really like you to fix it.

Sorry, can't provide an ETA. The workaround, however, is simple. Cmd + Z will restore your labels.

Glad I'm not the only person that noticed this. I thought I was going crazy.

It's especially troublesome when copying a group name to paste to another group, since you have to double-click, copy, then click to cancel the renaming of that group.
