I'm unsure if this is a bug or if this is expected behaviour.
In ArcMap 10.2.2, using the 'Select Features' tool, I have selected some features from a layer in the map view.
I then open the Attribute Table for a different layer, and select a record in the attribute table by clicking on the record in the table.
I would expect this to then deselect the features I had previously selected from the map view, but they stay selected. The Interactive Selection Method is set to Create New Selection.
If I try this the other way, i.e. select a record in the attribute table for a layer, then in the map view, use the Select Features tool to select a feature in another layer, then the record in the attribute table is deselected.
I'm wondering if this is supposed to work like this, or if its a bug. And if its a bug, does ESRI know about this?
