Since some of the newer cs versions of PS I got the problem that the Ctrl + left click stopped selecting layers directly when they're grouped in a folder. Instead PS simply selects the folder. If I right click inside the actual working space/viewport/image I get a somehow structured "tree" view with the folder name and the correct layer inside the folder. Is there a shortcut/mouse-keyboard click action that can directly select a layer inside the folder (again)?
The possible "solutions":
- Ctrl + left click = Select folder/group | Select outside a group
- Alt + left click = Select layer inside a folder group
- Mark "Auto select" (toolbar - top) + "Layer" from the drop-down
- right click then select the layer from the context menu
