Photoshop :: Suddenly Can't Select Any Shape Tool Or Move Selected Layers

Apr 15, 2013

If I right click on on the shape tool and try to select any of the choices nothing happens, the menu keeps showing.  I also can't move any layers anymore using the move tool.
Seems like a focus issue perhaps?  Latest Windows CS6 Photoshop updated to the latest version.

Photoshop :: Selecting Layers With Move / Select Tool Is Imprecise (CS6)

Aug 23, 2012

i switched from CS5 to CS6 Extended (Win 7 64bit) and I'm a little bit confused about the select/move tool (V). I have "automatic selection" activated and when I click on a layer, Photoshop often selects a nearby layer but not the one I'm clicking at - often the layer selected is more on top of the layer I was planning to select, but that was no problem in CS5 ... Is there anything I can change in the settings or is this behavior "normal"?
For example - a cursor placed at the marked position selected the white arrow-vector-shape.

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.

Photoshop :: Move Tool - PS CS [Auto Select ON]

Jan 23, 2008

Whenever I go to grab a set on my actual document with it selected in my layer drops right down to selecting the background layer or opens up my layer set and selects a layer within my layer set. I guess I'm not clicking the right spot but in my mind, Shouldn't it just move all the layers instead of randomly selecting some other layer that I didn't select?

Photoshop Elements :: How To Click On Layers Palette To Select Item To Move

Jul 15, 2013

I use PSE9 for digital scrapbooking.  Lately, when I have several pictures and elements on the page, I have to click on the Layers Pallette to select an item to move.  If I don't click on another item, the item I have just selected will move when I move my mouse.  I used to be able to click on an element or picture on the page and move it.

Photoshop :: Move Tool In CC Selecting Hidden Layers Too

Jun 19, 2013

I'm using the Photoshop CC in Windows8 64x as trial and find a curious bug with the Move Tool:Usually I select multiple layers creating a selection with the Move Tool on them, but in this new CC version the tool is selecting hidden layers too. More details: the hidden layer are inside a folder. The folder is hidden, but the inside layers are not.
This type of selection has always worked perfectly in previously versions, and of course, I leave the option "Auto Select> Layer" enabled.

Photoshop :: Unable To Scale Shape Layers Layer Mask Independent From Shape

Sep 25, 2012

In Photoshop CS6, when you have a shape layer with a layer mask, and the two are not linked together, and the layer mask is selected, you should be able to scale the layer mask independently of the shape. What actually happens is the shape gets scaled and the layer mask stays untouched. In fact, even if you option-click on the layer mask to show the mask by itself, and then try to scale it, you still end up scaling the shape instead of the mask. Even if you go as far as to make a pixel selection of the layer mask and attempt to scale the pixels, the shape still gets scaled and the layer mask still stays put! Unbelievable!
This works correctly in CS4, but not in CS6 (don't know about CS5).

Photoshop Elements :: Display Is Suddenly So Big / Can't See Layers Or Effects

Aug 29, 2013

all of a sudden, the display in PSE11 is so big on my Mac that I can't see the right-hand screen components, including the layers or effects. I looked all through the preferences and can't figure out how to re-size the display back to the default. I can't even minimize the display enough to grab the corner and pull the window in a little.  Is there any way to re-set the display to the default so I can see the layers and effects, without reinstalling the program?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Suddenly Lost Linetypes That Use Shape Files

Nov 16, 2006

i have a drawing i am working and somehow i lost my linetypes that use shape files, anything with text in the linetype work fine. I have tried to reload the shape file, compile it and to no avail. my file directories are pointing in the right direction and everytime i load and compile it goes to correct file and directory.

The reason i say i caused it is they were in the drawing working fine, and 1 or 2 commands later gone, I tried to insert the drawing into a new drawing and that did not work. if i start a new drawing it works fine.

Photoshop :: Move Tool Does Not Move Layer When Dragging With Wacom Tablet

Jan 14, 2013

I am using the trial version of CS5 (probably going to upgrade at the end of the trial), and I've only found one thing about it that I don't like more than CS3. This is VERY VERY annoying, and I'm not sure if it's a glitch, or just a preference that needs to be reset:
When using the move tool, I will move something and it will just snap back to where it originally was. When it snaps back, it might move a few pixels over in the direction I was dragging, but it is definitely not moving to where I want it to go. The only way to get things to move the way I want to is by Free Transform...but it's annoying, when you're trying to design a layout, to have to free transform every element you want to move, first.
I'm guessing that this is a glitch because sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn''s pretty random. I've tried turning Snap on and off, and nothing changes.

Photoshop :: Why Won't Quick Select Tool Select Transparent Canvas

Jul 15, 2013

I remember being able to select anything on the canvas with my Quick Select tool in CS5.5 Photoshop Extended. Recently, making the switch to CC, the Quick Select tool will show my slection as I drag along the canvas, but once I release the mouse, the selection seems to be reduced to the visible pixels. I was intentionally trying to fill the transparent sections with my effects as well.
Mind you, the magic wand will select transparent pixels just fine, but it also adds unintentional sections which is irritating. I should probably also pint out that I already looked into the "lock transparence" option in the layers, but I did not activate anything of the sort.

Photoshop :: Color Replacement Tool Suddenly Won't...

Feb 9, 2009

I used the color replacement tool without a problem. Today, no matter what I have set for the foreground color, the "replacing" color is grey, OR I don't see any replacing going on at all.

My mode is set to "color." I have tried all the sampling styles, check and unchecking the aliasing box and all the limits options.
