The RMB layer selection in the latest CC2014 seems to be broken for me. The menu does not automatically center on the most plausible result, but instead just gives me the raw list of all possible layers. Anyone else seeing this?

Looks like you're on Windows? What version? Are you using a mouse or a tablet?

Sorry, I'm on Windows 7 64, and the problem occurs with both my touch pad and my Wacom tablet.

The location you clicked appears to cover all those layers. And yes, the layers cover each other - but the list has to include everything under your click.

I think he's referring to the fact that the top most available layer isn't high-lighted in the menu like it is on Mac. I seem to recall there being a difference between Mac and Win in this regard but don't have access to a windows box at the moment.

Yes Jeff, that is correct. The list contents are correct, but the "purplePentagon" should be highlighted by default. Otherwise in very complex documents with hundreds of layers it gets extremely difficult to visually parse the list.
