I'm having a bit of an issue with the layer count when adding new layers in Photoshop... I am 100% sure I have renamed every layer I've added rather than just leaving it 'Layer #', but when I add a new layer, for some reason the layer count is at '524' instead of '1'. If I change the name of that newly added layer from 'Layer 524' to something else and then add another new layer, the count will go up to 525.
I have the layers organized into groups, and I've noticed if I delete a group (any group at all) and add a new layer, the layer count will go back to '1'. In other words, hypothetically speaking, if one group had a layer that was named 'Layer 523' and that's what was causing the new layer count to be 524, that couldn't be fixed simply by deleting ANY random group, the group that had this hypothetical 'Layer 523' in it would have to be deleted to solve the problem... or that layer would have to be renamed. What I'm saying is, I've troubleshooted this already, and if there were a 'Layer 523', that also wouldn't be causing the count to keep going up even after renaming newly added layers. Besides that, as I said at the beginning, I'm 100% sure I have renamed every layer. I've checked three or four times to make sure I don't have a layer called 'Layer 523'.
Has anyone else experienced this issue, or have any thoughts as to what might be causing it?
