Rearranging layer issue when other layers clipped above

Hey Community

A slight annoyance here. Whenever I try to move the entire layer up or down the stack, and that layer has other layers clipped (adjustment layers, etc) those layers do not follow. In other words, it moves only the "parent" layer, leaving the clipped layers unclipped and in place on the stack. I have to select the parent and it's clipped layers to rearrange them together. Is there a way to force the clipped layers to follow it's parent? I am not sure if that behavior was any different in older versions – i do not remember having this issue in the past (runing 21.2.3 on Mac now)

This behavior was in very old photoshops where moving the base layer caused the clipped layers to move.
Starting with version CS2 (year 2005) the behavior became what it is now.

To move layers together, you could

  • Shift + click to select the multiple layers and move them together
  • Shift + click to select the multiple layers, group them, and move them together
  • Shift + click to select the multiple layers, right-click, select Convert to Smart Object, and move the smart object (you can later right-click on the Smart Object and select Convert to Layers if you want the original layers)
