Hi

I am using PS 2021 for a month or so now. I set up a bunch of layers to animate. I was able to export to a video more than once with changes. I now need to make some further changes and when I go back to the orignal .psd the indivdual layers are intact, there are no video groups. I have auto select and show transform controls checked. The original layers had editable paths (pen tool).

When I leftclick a layer in the panel, the panel is highlighted and the canvas is selected (marching ants). Some of the pixel layers have the transform panel greyed when selected (marching ants) out and some do not (bounding box).

I don't want to set it all up from the beginning, any help on navigating the layers isue will be really good.

Thanks

"canvas is selected (marching ants)"

 

This should happen only if you Ctrl/Cmd + click on layers thumbnail, otherwise you should see bounding box because you have checked that option in the Options bar.

 

Can you post some screenshot or even short video to illustrate your issue and problem.
