Photoshop Contest Forum Index - New Users - All Layers in the Layers Panel greyed out? - Reply to topic

Hi,

I was wondering whether you could help me.

No matter what document I open in Photoshop (CS4) the layers grey out. If I double click them and go into the layer options then click cancel it will activate the layer, but as you could imagine, this is extremely annoying!

Hellllllllppppppp!

To be clear here: pressing the letter "Q" on your keyboard (at least in North America) turns the QUICK MASK MODE on and off.

As mentioned, if the QUICK MASK mode is ON, the layer markers in the LAYERS PALETTE go GRAY.

If you are not sure what Quick Mask is, then use that GOOGLE DEVICE to find out! Wink
