New nested layer? Or a "move to" layer ability?

Recommended Posts

Is there currently a way to select a bunch of layers/objects and collect them all into a new layer with all of those selected layers/objects nested inside or underneath the new layer?


I very often find that I want to organize projects as they get unwieldily and if I could select a bunch of layers, right click or hit a button/menu that could move all of those selections into a new folder for easy naming that would be so handy.


Does this ability exist now and I haven't found it?

Hi MEB, thanks, yes I did that and it does create a new layer but to take it further what if AD see's that you have one or more layers selected and offers an additional option in the right click menu to create the new layer and move (new layer and move) the selected layers into it with the layer name highlighted ready for a new name?


It's these kinds of workflow tweaks that will win over users, I think.


Smart, anticipated features. :)
