psd 21.2.4

Trying to move a layer using the move tool.

I click on the layer, as soon as I move, it switches to a different layer, and moves that.

I've been using psd for a while, so this isn't a beginner's mistake.

Another problem just occurred.  I just went back to the file.  Suddenly, for no reason, it filled my

entire screen.  I had to quit out.  That could be some gadget I haven't used & am ignorant of how

to get it back to normal, but am in a crunch, and don't have time to hunt around.

What is most annoying is how slick and commercial this application has become.

I m constantly assaulted by advertising schlock, when I only want to work in the program.

I never wanted to upgrade to this garbage.  I was forced because the old psd couldn't work

under the new mac upgrade.  Lesson learned.  never upgrade anything if you are comfortable

with your present workflowl.

Yea, it sounds like you have auto select turned on for the move tool. Uncheck it. It's on the left in the options bar, under the main menu.

»I've been using psd for a while, so this isn't a beginner's mistake.«

And what are the Move Tool’s settings (like »Auto-select«)? 

Could you please post screenshots with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Channels, Options Bar, …) visible?

I believe you are right,  it is the move tools setting.

I'll be happy to post stuff when I'm off this tight deadline!

I look everywhere, preferences and I could not find it, until I finally did. Having the MOVE tool selected. You can see it on the top left as mentioned. Now I have disselected and I hope that will solve the issue.

Again: Please post screenshots. 

 

What have you done for general trouble-shooting so far? 

Does turning off »Use Graphics Processor« in the Performance Preferences (Photoshop > Preferences > Performance > Graphic Processor Settings) and restarting Photoshop have any bearing on the issue? 

Restoring Preferences after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved might be a good starting point:

I wonder what »it filled my entire screen« is about, though; might be Full Screen Mode or a GPU issue or …
