Hello Adobe forums,

 

I was wondering if anyone could help me.

 

Recently my Photoshop has been auto-selecting the adjustment layers within my documents. I have the 'auto-select parameter' turned off but it's still selecting the adjustment layer that I want it to ignore.

 

On the below image I've clicked the 'RACE_NAME' layer and as you can see it's selected the 'Vibrance Adjustment Layer' which I want it to ignore.

 

If anyone could help I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

Is the Move Tool set to »Auto-Select« in the Options Bar?

Hello,

 

Yes it is set to Auto-Select. It's auto-selecting the adjustment layer. So annoying.

Really shouldn't be doing that; only layers with contents like pixels or Smart Objects should be chosen.

Try a tool reset? (You can use "Reset Tool" but to be thorough you can reset them all this way.)

If that doesn't work, a preferences reset might work (but be aware this will reset everything):

Thanks mate I've just tried both those methods.

 

It's still doing it, unfortunately. I think it's something to do with the files. If I delete the 'Vibrance Adjustment' layer and recreate it. The auto-select ignores the layer as normal.

 

Is there anyway another user could add a pixel to that adjustment layer? Or affect the file somehow so that it does this?

Can you repro with new documents?

 

Adjustment layers are just that; they don't have any elements/contents like pixel or Smart Objects do, other than their grayscale masks.

 

Are you on Mac? Wondering if this might be yet another video-driver-related bug that seems to be plaguing Mac users these days.
