Hi,
Situation:
When i ́m working with photoshop I work with many different layers, sometimes I ́d like to activate the auto-select layer so I ́m faster but other times I have to switch off in order to move small layers on top of big ones.
Proposal:
Keyboard shortcut to activate or deactive the option, so if I ́m in one layer but i want to paint or move the layer on the bottom I can select the layer with the mouse and this key at the same time, and i don ́t have to look in my layer list or switch every time on and off this option..

sorry for my english..anyway is just a small detail to be faster.
ciao ciao

The Cmd (Mac) Ctrl (Win) toggles "Auto Select Layer" on or off (depending on whether it's checked.
