When I want to specifically update the positions of layers (on the Layer Comps palette) it doesn't update all layers.

As can be seen from this video, only the colored rectangle's position is updated, while the rest of the layers ignore the Update Positions command:



Please fix this bug.

My first thought is that you may have only that layer selected in the Layers Panel. If you use the Update Position icon in the Comps Palette, it updates selected comps and only for the selected layers, not all layers.

Indeed you were right. Thank you Max!
I think it is very unintuitive that only selected layers get updated, and even the tooltip over the update positions button is quite vague in explaining that.

Learning that will definitely improve my workflow.

Cheers for the team!

Not as intuitive, but infinitely more useful when you need to update just one or two layers in 5 different layer comps!
