Duplication Occurs on Locked Layers | Photoshop (25.5.1)

I'm adding this to the pile because apparently it's been around for almost a decade.

 

Using alt+drag on locked layers will cause them to duplicate like unlocked layers. I think this has happened to me before but I just noticed it now. Regardless, if you guys would like this to be a feature, just add the option to toggle it off in the preferences becuase otherwise, It's inconvenient as all hell.

 

I would like to not duplicate my locked background layer everytime I just miss the element I'm trying to click or worse, when I try to duplicate something underneath my locked vingette layer.

in the future, to find the best place to post your message, use the list here, https://community.adobe.com/

p.s. i don't think the adobe website, and forums in particular, are easy to navigate, so don't spend a lot of time searching that forum list. do your best and we'll move the post (like this one has already been moved) if it helps you get responses.

Try grouping the layers that you want to Alt-click on. Or.. having the ones that you don't want to duplicate on a separate layer. Annoying, I know but this is is how I got around it when my locked guide layer kept duplicating.
