Automatic scroll to active layer

Recommended Posts

Any chance of a quick tweak to make the active layer more obvious.

When scrolling through 100s of layers - the active layer is easily missed.

 

When an object is clicked - automatically scroll to that layer?

Is that possible?

Yes, it's definitely possible - just needs some extra UI :)

 

In the meantime, if you either:

 

- Hold Alt (Option) and right click, or...

- Right click and choose 'Find in Layers Panel'

 

you should automatically scroll the layers panel to show your selected item.

 

Thanks,

Matt

I think it was already suggested here...

but it's a MUST HAVE!!!! as you say, when working with hundreds of layers.... and even less!!!

I usually scroll to the active layer to hide or lock it. I would like to see a right click type of scenario to lock or hide objects, much like the right click to "find in layers panel" now... would save a few steps over the course of an illustration.

 

Right click, hide or lock...

Right click again to show all or unlock all.   :)
