Photoshop :: Can't Select Multiple Layers (Shift-Left Click)

Jul 31, 2004

I know this problem is really simple, but I just can't seem to get it to work. I should be able to left-click on a layer, hold in the shift key while left-clicking on a layer further down the list to select multiple layers. It doesn't work, I can't even get the (Alt-Left Click) command to work, allowing me to select individual layers.

Both these commands work in Image Ready and Flash just fine.

I have checked the keyboard settings, but I am not really sure what to look for - nothing seems out of the ordinary.

GIMP :: Select Multiple Layers Easily?

Aug 31, 2012

In Inkscape, you can select multiple objects by simply using the Selecttool and putting a box around the objects. I unwittingly did the samething in Gimp. I chose the Select tool (R) and selected several images inone column. I thought, that I would see all the boxed-in layers selectedfor easy duplication, but nope.

So how can I quickly/easily select a box-full of layers at once, a laInkscape?

GIMP :: Select / Copy / Paste Multiple Layers?

Dec 11, 2011

Using GIMP 2.6.11 under Windows XP

Is this real? I am really amazed that there is no way to do this. Am I missing something? I have multiple images, each with a unique background layer. On top are multiple other layers, both images and text layers. I was editing one and was about to save it but then realized it was on the wrong background.

All I want to do is select four or five layers from this unsaved image with Background A, copy them and then open an image with Background B and paste them in so there will be minimal issues with alignments and such. I have been editing each of these four layers and there are a fair bit of changes that have been made to just throw them away and start over. The background is not the only difference between the images, it is just what I use as a reference so copying that over to the unsaved image would also require multiple layer copy/pasting.

I have already tried linking the layers but any copy/cut/paste seems to only work on the active layer, unless I am again missing something. This seems like a really fundamental function to not be supported.

Illustrator :: Select Multiple Objects On Layers Panel In CC?

Mar 11, 2014

i have a guge artwork and i need to select a small groups (around 10-100) of objects from about 4000 overlayed objects and then group'em/split-to-layers for usability (This is a human body infographics for medical institute) There IS NO way selecting them from canvas because they are overlayed, and sometimes not visible at all. in CS5 there was a feature to select multiple objects by Alt+drag selection icon on the most right in the Layers Panel. Now the duplication mode turns-on when i try to perform it. So.. Ho do i select multiple object without need to click through thousands of them? (i need drag-select)

Photoshop :: Move Tool Auto Select Is Not Capturing Multiple Objects Upon Drag / Select

Jun 18, 2013

I know this discussion title is a bit murky, but the problem is a bit odd.  I have Photoshop CS6 v13.1.2.  In this version, I will activate the Select Tool, check Auto-Select: Layer, check Show Transform Controls, and then while using the Select Tool I will drag to create a rectangle to select multiple layers with content within the specified area. 

Unfortunately, this action only works when I begin the selection from outside of the canvas area.  If started from within the canvas area, no rectangle will appear, it will show me a measurement of my selection size, and then no layers will be selected upon release.
This cannot be working as intended right?  I mean multi-select dragging cannot be intended to only work when started outside of the canvas right?  Is there some way to fix this issue?  Is this a bug?  See the images below for more information on this issue.

AutoCad :: Shift Select To Select Multiple Objects?

May 15, 2008

Right now, when i click one object and then another, the first object becomes deselected. Holding shift is the only way for me to select multiple lines right now (other than dragging of course) but that's not what I'm used to and it annoys me a lot. At first everything is fine but then after a while it does this without me changing any options at all.

Photoshop :: Apply Adjustment Layers To Multiple Layers That Have Different Blending Modes?

Sep 6, 2013

How to Apply adjustment layers to multiple layers that have different blending modes  and keep the colors the same as the adjustment done?
I work in Animation painting Backgrounds.  My files are sometimes upwards to 200+ layers.I will use adjustment layers to quickly balance colours and constrast on top of those many many layers.
The only way that I know of how to apply adjustment layers it to every single layer  ( by applying I mean I need to get rid of the adjustment layers because we cant use them in production but i need the new colours be applied to all layers underneath ) in a psd is to manually do it By duplicating the adjusment layer 200+ times and  then merging each layer to one of those adjustment layers so that that layer can take the adjustment layers effect permanently.
The issue is that Within Those 200 layers I have some layers set to Multiply or OVERLAY.    IT obviously wont apply the adjustment layer properly to those layers because those layer blend mode affect the layers under them. The colour wont be the same anymore in the spots that had the multiply blended mode.


I have 2 adjustment layers up top.  I need to get rid of them by applying them to each layer! I cannot merge any of the layers. We need all those layers for production.I can apply the adjustment layers manually and this works GREAT for all Layers set to normal.  THey take on the colour change just FINE.
However, The issue is that layer 6 and layer 4 are both set to mutiply and this screws up the colour once i apply the adjustment layers to each layer manually...
How can i apply my adjustment layers to a file like this with some layers being set to multiply while keeping the layers exactly the same configuration  and The new colour taking effect exactly how i looks before i apply the adjustment layers? Now the simple solution is to merge the multiply layers to the layer that it affects HOWEVER I NEED those multiply layers to be separate!

Illustrator :: Delete Multiple Layers By Selecting Multiple Object?

Jan 25, 2014

I'm going to connect my AI file to After effect. So I had to create lots of layers in order to edit them seperatly in After effects. But it seems like my amount of layers are too large because AE always crashes (not responding -> Force quit)
So I wanna break some stuff down in multiple AI files, but I don't wanna go and select every layer and delete it. That would take too much time. Is there a way to select the multiple objects in Illustrator and delete that but also its layer its in?

Photoshop :: Can Not Select Layers - CS3

Mar 1, 2008

I am using the 30 day trial version of CS3 before I buy. I have been using Elements for years.

I have a PSD file that was sent to me. In elements I can click on any item in the file and move, delete etc.

But in CS3 I can not do that. I have to go to layers and find the layer I am looking for, click on it in the layer list and then I can go to the image and manipulate it.
Is this just the way it works in CS3 or do I need to flip a switch somewhere.

Photoshop :: Duplicating Multiple Sets Of Separately Linked Layers Results In All Layers Being Linked Together

Mar 11, 2013

I found an old thread from 2011 about the same problem and the mod reported it to the devs, but as far as I know no solution has ever been offered.(maybe in cs6? we are still using cs5)For one or two layers it's no problem to do it manually, but with say 40 layers with corresponding linked layers we need a better solution.

Photoshop :: Can't Select Layers With Transparency

Apr 4, 2013

1. I can no longer nudge grouped layers. Photoshop complains that it cannot nudge layers in a group.
2. When I try to move a layer selected in the layer panel (or selected via ctrl-alt-right click), a click on the layer selects the layer effect above instead.It seems like there is some kind of click through enabled. If I click on a transparent part of the layer, the layer below get selected instead.
My first thought was that this had something to do with "Auto-select layer/group", but it's disabled. how can I go back to normal mode, so I can click anywhere in a layer, transparent or not, and move the items in it etc?(I'm using Photoshop CS6.)

Photoshop :: Clipping Mask Multiple Text Layers Without Merging Text Layers

Dec 29, 2008

I am trying to get a white layer with see through writing which reveals the background image underneath. (Almost like I have put a stencil over a photograph). I have discovered this is called a clipping mask.

However, I am having difficulty using a clipping mask over multiple text layers. It seems to only do it to one layer directly beneath. I do not want to merge the text layers as I want to mess about with the design a fair bit.

Photoshop :: How To Select Bottom Layer Of 2 Or More Layers

Oct 2, 2012

This has baffled me that photoshop does not do this. But why can't I not ctrl+click on a layer and get to the layers underneath that layer? No matter how many times I ctrl+click the layer to select it, it just selects the same topmost layer.

It is interupting my workflow majorly and it is really frustrating when using a lot of texture overlays to have to hide them and then ctrl+click to find where the layer is that I want to work on. Right clicking on my document just brings up all layers in my document no matter where my mouse is.

This is what shows when I right click: [URL]....

Photoshop :: Way To Select Matching Pixels On 2 Different Layers?

Jul 10, 2013

If I shoot 2 different portraits (of 2 different people), against the same background (a complex one not a backdrop), using a locked frame on a tripod, giving me the same exact background in both pictures, with only the portraits changing.
If I then take these 2 pictures, and create layers out of them in the same Photoshop document, and align them perfectly on top of each other.
Is there a way (action, plugin, script, etc...) to select the pixels that did not change between the 2 layers? In other words, the pixels that create the background of both pictures? And would it make it easier if I shoot the background alone, and then the portraits, and then follow the same steps?
