PSCS6. Cmd+Click path thumbnail selects (different) vector mask instead.

PS CS6 (13.0.4) on OSX 10.6.8, MacPro 1.1

If I have a few paths, and try to create a selection from one of them by cmd-clicking it, every time I'm on a layer which has a vector mask, the selection is created off that vector mask (whether it's highlighted or not).

The highlight/selection doesn't matter - cmd-click should load the values from the mask you click on.

Can you provide a screenshot of your layers palette and the result you're getting?

Sure.

Seems to be intermittent, and didn't happen in the ducoment at first, but I was able to reproduce it:

Not sure which of the steps triggers it, but I'm guessing the drag and drop?

Opened the document, 16bpc. Drag & drop several layers from another (8bpc) document onto it, containing the vector mask. (everything above and including the "metaal" layer.
Cmd-click any path, the vector mask of layer "Laag 6" get's selected.

Howdy Réné,

I'd like to follow up on this bug. Would you mind sending me a copy? I'll send an email as well.

Thanks,

René, do you have more info?
Reproductible case, trigger event?
Does it occur the first try, or only after a long session?

This one might have been solved. Haven't come across it in a while.
I'll try to see if I can reproduce it later today.

Nope. Still there today (after a longer session).
Not sure what triggers it, but you need to have a layer highlighted with a vector mask that has a feathering.

If I highlighted on the layer "Metaal", that vector mask will be selected, if I highlighted on the layer DoorGlas, that vector mask will be the selection, regardless of what path I Cmd-click...



I'll see if it's still reproducible after a restart of PS...

Yep. 100% reproducible after re-starting PS.
Cmd click on the vector mask in the layers palette works as expected, cmd+click on anything in the paths palette selects the vector mask highlighted in the paths palette...
