Hi,
I used to do a Control>click to select a layer (I'm using CS1), but
now - out of the blue - all I have to do is click on a layer without hitting
control to select it. I actually kind of like it that way - but I'm not sure
how/why that changed. I don't recall purposely changing anything, and I
don't see a setting for that in Preferences. Mostly I'm just curious... :)

Thanks..!

DB

there is a setting to control that it is just not under edit >preferences
If you select the move tool you will see it up top (auto select layer)

you can check or uncheck as you like
Normally I do not like it checked, it changes layers I am working in when I
just want to look at them on/off etc.
But when I am making collages or other layouts that require lots of moving
and positioning it's quite handy.
