Hello!
I've encountered a bug with Photoshop CC 2014.2.1. When viewing only a layer group inside the layers palette (via Select -> Isolate Layers, or having that specific filter activated), you cannot unfold or collapse groups inside this displayed layer group. Or this layer group itself. It just does not work!

Reproduced this: Just an empty file, empty layers, and grouping some of them:



Closed Groups cannot be opened, opened cannot be closed in »isolated view« (only show selected group inside the layers palette) though the arrow changes

This is by design because the layers panel is showing a flat view of the layer structure. (The sub layers & groups are considered selected by inheritance of the parent group)

Once could argue that we should hide the disclosure triangle, but in all honesty, I think that's probably more work than it's worth.

That the sub layers and groups are also selected is what I consider really good. So you can concentrate on special parts of the image. Eg. I have a compositing file for a major car campaign that contains about 200 layers. The car alone has about 100. I can concentrate better on the car by hiding everything else than the car group in the layers palette.
But I have no chance to look inside a group inside that group if it was closed at the time I decided for the isolated view. I have to un-isolate the view, open the group I want to be able to look into, and then re-isolate the mother »car« group.
It would be much more convenient, if the sub groups would keep working when viewing a parent group isolated.
Can you comprehend my problem? 🙂 Thanks for your time.

I would like to be able to organize a bunch of layers by selecting them and then isolating them from other layers in the panel by filtering on "Selected" layers only. In that filter view I cannot collapse Layer Groups if they are already expanded and I cannot collapse them if they are expanded.
