Hi I am on a Mac Mojave, using Photoshop 2019 (20.0.2)

The auto layer select is disabled within any marquee selection. If I place the marquee to only include part of the image then the layer portion within the marquee will NOT auto layer select. I have tested this using the move tool using command+click and the auto-select layer check box. Drop down IS set to layer. The tool behaves normally when there is no active marquee selection and also breaks with the lasso selection.

Hi Tom, this is still broken in the latest photoshop release. Do you know if there are any plans to fix it.
