When I direct select an individual layer using right click on the canvas, the specific layer is highlighted in the layer pallete and I'm able to easily move it around/duplicate it, apply blending styles etc.

However when I try to do the same with a group, it doesn't get revealed in the layer palette unless its parent groups are already expanded. Is there a way to force Photoshop to show the selected group in the layer palette?
