Layers Group - In the group (folder) we move the objects with move tool and it moves all grouped objects that’s much better, but when we open the group (Folder) after opening it moves also all grouped objects inside of it !!!, that’s not perfect, how to do it for new version ! just double click on grouped any object in the canvas to open the group then move any (one/more selected) object by pressing & holding Ctrl key (in PC) if auto select is not turned on in control bar, click on the object, and double click on any grouped object to close the group (folder) like Illustrator.

If you select a layer in a group, either in the Layers panel or by right-clicking to bring up the layer menu on canvas, you can hold the cmd(Mac) ctrl (Win) key to disable "Auto-Select" and move the child layer independently from the group.
