I don't use Layer Sets, so you got me to experimenting.

I created a layer set, added five of layers to it and painted different colors on each layer. I clicked on one of the layers and added an adjustment layer. Then I clicked on the top layer in the set and added another adjustment layer. Worked the same way for me as regular layers.

What symptoms are you experiencing?

But I need Curves1 to affect only Set1 and not Set2.
Possible?

Or maybe it'll be out in the next version of PS?haha.

Have you tried this?:
* Add the Curves adjustment layer to the set
* Click on the Curves adjustment layer
* Layer > Group with Previous

Does that help?

Nice mockup, by the way. Picture worth 1K words...

I'm using Photoshop 7. See attachment (not a mockup). The "indented" Adjustment Layers got that way via Group with Previous commands. They affect the layers directly below them up until the first un-indented layer.

If you create an adjustment layer within the Layer Set, I discovered you can drag/drop it "above" the layer set.

Is any of this helping?

I was trying this out on CS and was kind of stumped. You have to create a clipping mask...which I couldn't figure out quickly! But I did run across an alternative.

Create your adjustment layer while you have the layer set folder highlighted (which will put the AL at the top of the stack,) then change the blending mode of the entire layer set to anything OTHER than pass through. I don't know why this works, but it does apply the AL to just the layer set.

Now I have to go figure out clipping masks....hmmmm....
