There is a problem of new “CC” version. in “CS6” when we click on a shape through “Direct Selection Tool” without selecting the layer it automatically select the shape and focus the border line type but in “CC” it dose not work. First we select the layer then it will work kindly solve this issue.

If you want the shape to be selected, make sure you set the option for "Select:" to "All Layers" in the Direct Select options bar.
