Photoshop CC 2015 - when deleting or adding layers, the selected layer is getting to the top of the layers window. It's very frustrating the blinking of this window with every layer movement.

Yes, a shockingly bad decision. It has got to change.

F*ck! It's so annoying! Can somebody fix it, please!
Maybe there is an option for that in settings menu - anybody found it?

And another thing. Moving layer to a Group folder, puts it on the TOP of layers instead at the BOTTOM like it used to be. For God sake, what's the point of changing that. Sh*t!

Seems I started a thread similar to this one but will add my 2 cents here as well.

It's more than just the selected layer jumping. Layers you haven't selected but are modifying jump/scroll up and outside of view.

Try this:

Drag a mask from a layer at the bottom of the stack to a layer near the top - a common operation. The layer you just dragged the mask onto scrolls up and out of view. You have no idea if you added the mask to the correct layer.

I can't understand the reasoning and logic behind this from the Adobe team. It would be great to hear from Adobe on how this is in any way logical or helpful.

Having layers jump/scroll position after you have just visually located where they sit in the layer stack really breaks your workflow. It increases the chance of making a mistake on a complex files. So I can't see how it is logical or helpful in any way.

It's a serious step backwards for Photoshop. I would go as far as saying it's the most messed up change I've seen since Photoshop V1. It's not like I can modify my workflow to magically see a disappearing layer!

Adobe team, please respond - there has not been any sort of acknowledgement about this.

Please fix or give us a workaround! This is really slowing me down and causing needless frustration. It doesn't make sense to put something like layer position in the window out of the user's control.

This bug breaks the workflow. I'm so frustrated: whenever I move a layer I find I must search for the new location of the layer on the Layer panel. Also, it fails when you convert a layer in a smart object as well! This wastes so much of my time.
