I dragged a layer into a Smart Object to clone stamp from the added layer onto the Smart Object Layer. This worked fine. I closed the Smart Object, saving the changes and it looked great. I reopened the Smart Object to contine my work and when I try to drag the added layer around the Selection tool jumps to the adjustment layer associated with the new added layer. Why can't I move the Layer around? I was initially able to do so. Thanks.
Per @c.pfaffenbichler , the Auto Select checkbox is enabled. You will find it on the the left side of your control bar at the top of the screen. When this is enabled, it automatically picks up what is topmost and being clicked on.
