[By Design] Group as child - can't open group

Recommended Posts

From single image file:

  • Add a few adjustment layers above the image layer (Assistant: Add adjustment as new layer)
  • Group the adjustment layers
  • Drag the group down to the image so you get the little vertical blue bar (not the horizontal one)
  • Group is copied just fine
  • Now you can't open the group (no little triangle arrow) (see attached)

Hi dmstraker


This is actually intended rather than a bug when nesting or masking a layer width another group or object. This helps to keep the layer panel visually simpler especially when you start adding objects that are clipped to the layer also using the horizontal blue bar
