Since I upgraded to Photoshop CC2015 I have this Problem:

When I hold Alt-Key + left Mouse button to dublicate a layer group, I can't move it directly underneath the original group. I always have to drag the group at least 2 groups further down or up.

This is very anoying, because after every duplication now I have to re-arrange my groups.

I'm Using Windows 8.1, 64bit

Hi Christian,

I just tried this and couldn't reproduce the problem.  If I have a layer and ALT+click, I can drag it wherever I want.  Could you clarify what steps you're taking?  I've tried this on both Win7.1 and Win8.1

Thanks,
David

It's not about a single layer, it's about layer groups.

I made some screenshot to demonstrate the problem.
(Sorry for poor quality, but the windows screenshot feature doesnt work very well while holding and dragging stuff)

Hi Christian,

Ah, now I understand.  You can ALT+drag a copy of a layer group anywhere EXCEPT directly underneath the source.  I am able to create it one layer farther "down" than I would like.  I'll go ahead and log this bug.

Thanks,
David
