Photoshop CC / mac /

Dear Photoshop team I am very appreciative of all your hard work and efforts to put out a great product and it is one great product.

With that stated I must admit that I am very disappointed with the bug that has been reported over 2 months ago in regards to hidden locked group layers being selected on drag selecting with the move tool. I have lost a significant amount of time in production of design with this flaw. I don't believe two months is an unreasonable amount of time to make the fix to this bug considering it has never had an issue in the past.

Every response to this complaint states that Adobe is aware of the problem that it is being worked on but discussions about the release of the BUG FIX is not something representatives are able to discuss. That is a poor excuse as this is not a small bug with a work around on files with hundreds of layers. Did you understand that? Hundreds of layers! If I told you the work around for finding a 2.5" nut in a pile of hundreds of 2" nuts but you have to sift through a bottle neck the diameter of a milk container would you accept that as an answer? We only have so much real estate on screen. I have many layers of on/off/action states and so forth and this is the worst issue I have EVER had. This is not a mistake this is a complete lack attention by the analyst/testers.

To make matters worse I just updated PS with your bug fix update and was hoping to see a fix to this issue but was devastated to see that you once again failed to correct the issue. When are you going to get this issue corrected? WE DESERVE TO KNOW AS PAYING CUSTOMERS WHO SUPPORT YOUR BUSINESS! I am fuming about this and no longer even want to open and work with my files due to this issue.

P.S. Please don't respond with long work around solutions that don't do production deadlines any favors. As mentioned before my supervisors don't accept the response you provide and neither would you. When a deadline is a deadline your inability isn't an excuse.
