[Multi] Alt-click for solo-layer

Recommended Posts



would it be possible to make the "tick" mark by the layer turn off all layers except clicked when alt-clicked?

I usually have a base layer and a number of correction layers, If I want to disable all layers (ie. to do some work on it, or to add another pixel layer (ie. to work with healing brush)), I need to click all my layers (yes, grouping is a work-around, but sometimes I have sets of groups and and don't like to stack groups within groups etc.) while alt-click could work here too.

We can already 'solo' a layer by Alt-clicking in the Layers panel, but (perhaps a little counter-intuitively) you need to click on the thumbnail or the text label, not on the tick mark itself.
