Then I would suggest opting for the entire rectangle - with smaller elements and text it can be very difficult to precisely select the content in the latest beta version. As Martin mentioned earlier, too many options are confusing.bkh wrote:I think that such a totally different behaviour depending on another tool setting is too confusing. Either make it a separate option (layer tool works on visible parts vs. layer tool works on entire layer) or decide.Herbert123 wrote:1) when in deep selection mode, the user can select & drag other object directly only by clicking on pixels (non-transparent areas).
2) when in normal selection mode, the user can drag objects when clicking/dragging somewhere in the selection rectangle, no matter whether the area clicked within that selection rectangle is transparent or not.
Although a number of users have expressed the wish to have the option to select through the transparency of layers - and in many cases this is actually very handy to have as well. So perhaps it would be better to add a "select non-transparent only" option in the overall preferences under "working" to at least accommodate those two very different and individualistic working preferences.
Those are still individually selectable in the layer panel. And once selected, they can be moved, edited, and the properties displayed. One of the things that is a bit of a workflow stopper, is that the child adjustment layers' settings are only visible in the adjustment layer panel when directly selected in the layer panel.bkh wrote:But what about the associated mask layers, which might be totally different for the different adjustments?Herbert123 wrote:I would suggest the following solution:
when a layer has child adjustment layers, the settings of all the direct children should be displayed in the Adjustment Layer panel!
Showing the settings of all child adjustment layers in the adjustment layer panel would give us instant access to all the settings (similar behaviour as the grouped layer adjustment layer). If the user only wants to see one adjustment layer settings, the respective adjustment layer can be selected by its own in the layer panel.
