Suddenly the dragging-selection by mouse click & drag stopped working (trying to select multiple layers with mouse dragging).

In this clip at first i show drag-selection outside the artboard - works great.

later i show click & drag for selection INSIDE the artboard -> doesn't work at all:

Hi,

 

We're sorry about the trouble with Photoshop. Would you mind sharing the version of Photoshop you're using? Did you start experiencing this issue after an update to Photoshop or to Windows? Are you able to select multiple layers if you press & hold the CTRL key while clicking & dragging?

 

You can try to reset the preferences of Photoshop using the steps mentioned here: https://adobe.ly/2Qzc0K3

Please backup your settings prior to resetting the preferences. You can check: https://adobe.ly/2vNz6FG

 

Let us know how it goes!

Regards,

Nikunj

It's an older thread sorry for opening it again but it's driving me crazy. In my case Auto-Select is checked, I've resetted the preferences using the method mentioned above but nothing changed still not working, I'm using version 25.0.1
