When I am recording a new macro, with the background selected, if I press the record button and then press escape, I receive the message "deselected" on the macro screen. I can't seem to get to the "clear selection" so that I can place filters above the background. With the "deselect" any filters applied are as child layers to the background.

Probably a very easy solution, but not for me! 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Use either of these solutions:

1) In the Assistant, choose “Add adjustment as a new layer” instead of as a child layer; or

2) After deselecting, choose “Deselect Layers” from the Select menu. This will assure that any new layer is placed on the top of the stack.
