I apologize for the trivial question:

What is the button indicated by the arrow for or how should it be used?


Hovering over it with the mouse it tells me 'Change all levels' but, whether turned off or on, absolutely nothing changes for me.
The guide does not add anything else to clarify.
Did I not understand how it works or did I not understand how to use it?

I'm on APhoto 1.8.5
Thank you

Edit All Layers according to the Help:

  • Allows selection and editing of layer contents across all layers (rather than the current layer).

If you do not have that button selected, then you can not edit any layer that is not selected in the layers panel.

EDIT: Well I just tried it and seems to be a bug. I have it work as described before, but currently it doesn't.

The Edit in All Layers is a function meant for Designer. I think they included it in Photo, so when you would bring a file from Designer into Photo that had Layer (think container) layers.
