In the two latest Photoshop releases this bug occured: if to click a video layer on the timeline, it's not getting selected, but has to (two releases back it worked fine). It's really annoying when creating animation and need to switch between the layers constantly, but it's not possible on the timeline.

Are you on macOS or Windows? Using a mouse or tablet?

Are you clicking on the colored bars in the timeline or the names in the far left column of the Timeline panel?

What I am seeing is that clicking on the bars has a different behavior. It selects the layer in the layers panel but the panel doesn't scroll to display the selected layer if it's out of the view in the layers panel. It also doesn't select the layer in the timeline named column of the Timeline panel.

If I click on the names in the far left column of the Timeline panel, every selects the way I would expect. Is this what you are seeing?

hey jeffrey, yes, it behaviors like this: 

if to click in the middle of the bar - nothing happens (but the layer should be selected):


the only spot on the bar that responds to the clicking is that tiny arrow.
it does select the layer, but it expands and takes too much space.


expected behavior (as it was before): if to click the bar in the middle, it's getting selected:
