When I want to draw on a layer and select it for that purpose, Illustrator always selects all the objects on that layer. When zoomed in and no empty place on the artboard, this might get irritating.
Maybe there could be a deselect option in the task bar? The deselect all keyboard shortcut is not obvious (but thankfully works)
Hi @Monika Gause,
Thank you for sharing your used cases. I tried reproducing the issue at my end, but maybe I missed some steps. Could you please share a screenshot or video of the issue for better understanding?
I will make sure to share your observations and feedback with the team for improvements.
I was referring to selecting a layer (in a file with multiple layers) in order to draw something on that layer. When I do that, and click on a layer, Illustrator will always select all the objects on that layer. And also I noticed when recording the attached video that Illustrator doesn't deselect an already selected layer. I just launched Chrome for this, so it couldn't be an issue with the browser.

Thanks, @Monika Gause, for explaining the issue and sharing the video. I've passed on your feedback to the product team for potential enhancements.
