Move Tool annoyance in Photoshop CS6.
I use the move tool alot in my work, with high fidelity mockups for interface design. I rely on precision and predictability in my workflow. In Photoshop CS6 with the move tool set to auto-select layer, i would suspect the move tool to select the excact element im targeting at which it doesn't. it automatically selects nearby elements, which is a HUGE annoyance and disturbance. It ruins the workflow, and it's unpredicable.

Is there at least an option to remove this behaviour and just make it precise as in previous versions of photoshop?

Any progress on this from Adobe? I'm on Photoshop CS6 version 13.0.6.
It's the only major issue I have left with CS6.

What?! no fix?! How unlike you guys, Adobe. I guess if you don't have a CC subscription you don't deserve a functional product. A thousand bucks doesn't buy much these days, does it?
