Text bug giving me the SH|TS - Adobe Photoshop Mac CS, CS2 & CS3

I dunno if it's just CS or what but there is a really annoying text 'bug' in PS CS... When designing interfaces I like to keep seperate 'page' designs in seperate layer sets. This works fine as I work in one layer set, finish the design, duplicate that layer set and then use that as my template for the next page design.

    I dunno if it's just CS or what but there is a really annoying text 'bug' in PS CS...

    When designing interfaces I like to keep seperate 'page' designs in seperate layer sets. This works fine as I work in one layer set, finish the design, duplicate that layer set and then use that as my template for the next page design. Doing this, sets duplicate on top of eachother and I usually end up with my 'home' design as the bottom layer set.

    This is where the trouble starts. As soon as I open this lower layer set and try to edit some text in there, PS decides that it is gonna try and open another text box in a higher layer that is LOCKED and HIDDEN. This becomes VERY frustrating as PS gives me an error that it cant edit the text coz the layer is locked. This means I gotta click the ok button, close the upper layer again, make it invisible again and go back to my lower layer, find the appropriate text I wanna edit (which is usually hidden deep within nested layer sets) and click in exactly the right spot so I don't repeat the above process. Even when I do click in the exact same spot, it can still jump to a higher text box if there happens to be text there (a regular occurance since I am using the last page is a template).

    It's f**king sh**ting me and wastes time!

    Anyone either a) experienced this and b) know how to stop this?!!?

    Click on the move tool in the tool palette.

    is the "auto select layer" check box on?

    If so,

    and just remember that the move tool behaves differently than from pressing command down and moving it that way...(a pain in the UI)

    No and No.

    Firstly, I expect that when I have the text tool selected and click on the VISIBLE and UNLOCKED text, PS should select that text, rather than try to select some text on a higher layer that is both hidden and locked.

    Auto select layer definetly not chcked.

    I've been using PS since version 4 and have never experienced this - well - ever since layer sets were introducted.
