I am keyboard phobic and have great difficulty with shortcuts, so pop up right click context menus are a very useful shortcut device indeed. for me. Now that is a very personal problem but I am sure there are plenty of others who find well implemented context clicking a very focused way of getting to just what you need in a given context. I find that this is rather inconsistently applied in the Layers Palette. There are things one does very rarely included there and things one does frequently that are missing.


I think the following need adding to this menu when the appropriate layer(s) are selected.


Merge Down for mask and adjustment layers. You have to go to the main layers menu to find it. 


Merge Selected for multiple layers. Once again you have to go to the main mayer menu to find it.


Invert layer (very useful for mask layers). Only available from main menu.


Lock Children. It shouldn’t really be necessary to have to select the Pick tool and then select this in it’s property bar. To my mind it properly belongs here in the Layers Palette context menu as well.

I forgot to add to the previous post that it would be very helpful if locked children carried some sort of indicator to show their locked status. This applies regardless of my context menu locking suggestion.
