Double-click to edit text not working when textbox is over a frame (even when frame layer is locked)

I have recently started using the frame tool to mask images in my document (rather than using shapes and clipping masks). I discovered that the double-click to edit a text box function does not work if the text box is on top of a frame (in a visual sense and as layer).

The frame layer is locked, so you would think it should not interfer when interacting with the text box.

I then tried turning the frame layer visibility off, then double-clicked on the text box and it allowed me to edit as normal. When I switch the layer visibility of the frame to 'on' again, the double-click on the text box didn't work again.

 

I have assumed this is some sort of bug. As I would assume that locking the frame layer would prevent any conflict between layers.

Hey, @helen.meeds. Welcome to the Photoshop Community. We've moved the post to discussions; I'll need more info to help you figure this out.

 

Please share the screenshots or video of the workflow and the system info from Photoshop Help > System info > Copy and paste into a text document > Upload and attach here.

 

Based on the description, I could not recreate this with Photoshop 25.9.1 on my test machine. Do you double-click on the layers panel or the document's canvas?

 

Follow these steps to ensure Photoshop is in the default state:

Go to the location of the preference folder mentioned below and rename it to back up. (https://adobe.ly/3u7u84j)
macOS: Hold down the Option key in the Finder when using the Go menu. The library will appear below the current user's home directory.

Library > Preferences > Adobe Photoshop [version] Settings

Rename the Adobe Photoshop folder by adding a .old at the end. (Adobe Photoshop 2024 > Rename > Adobe Photoshop 2024.old)

This will give a fresh start to Photoshop as a new installation.

Let me know if it helps. Thanks!
Sameer K

Have you tried double-clicking the layer thumbnail?
