PHOTOSHOP - Active layer jumps to the top of Layers Panel

With the latest release of Photoshop the selected layer jumps to the top any time you change your selection on the canvas. This is SUPER ANNOYING!!!
#I - anytime the layers panel just jumps I feel lost.
#2 - there is a huge assumption that I am only working on the layers below the current layer which is rarely the case.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BACK THIS FEATURE-BUG OUT.

Do you mean the layer moves to the top of the layer stack (changing your document), or just to the top of the layers palette (drawing the palette) ?

Do you mean the Layers palette is scrolling so that the current layer is at the top of the visible palette area when you perform certain operations on that layer? I believe this was a problem in PS 2015.0.0 but fixed six months ago:

What version of Photoshop are you using?

The current version of PS CC is 2015.1.1 so if you have that version can you explain in more detail how to reproduce the scenario?

Working on Windows with PS 2015.1.1 I am not seeing the Layers palette scroll when I do things to a layer that is not currently visible, but perhaps I'm not doing the same operation(s) as you are. Specifically, what do you mean by "change your selection on the canvas"?

Yes. I am not on the latest version for some reason. Weird. It doesn't tell me to update in the Creative Cloud app.

Maybe because my company purchased the full master collection and not the CC subscription. I personally purchased a CC subscription just to get the latest on my computer. Maybe that is the problem. I just uninstalled it and will try re-installing it to see if that works.

Thanks for your help you nailed it.
