Since updating photoshop beta I've noticed i can no longer deselect layers by just clicking an empty area in the layers panel. Now if i do that I get a message saying I need to press command and click to do that. Why?


Adobe there is no reason for this extra step to be necesary.

This change does not make photoshop better or faster to use. It makes deselecting layers less easy.


Please revert to the old way or at least give us the option to choose if clicking empty space (without command) deselects layers in the layers panel.
