Shouldn't be able to select layers by masked areas inside nested groups.

Putting a layer inside a group and applying a mask to the group the masked areas are not selectable with Move Tool (correct, red layer). But if you put that layer in a subfolder inside your main masked folder it will become selectable with move tool (black layer).

It also has a problem if the layer is below the subfolder and not even in the subfolder folder (green layer)

This is a problem when working with complex multi-layer files. You're trying to work in one masked area and the move tool keeps selecting the wrong group even though nothing is visibly there.
