Jump to layer (in layer panel) which contains selected objects

Recommended Posts

Hi, have a little problem :) cannot find a way how to jump to layer which contains selected object. I see only highlighted layer (if not expanded, then only highlighted group) in layer view, and i have to manually open the group, subgroup, etc.... 

use case - gui dev, have 40+ artboards, and 1000+ layers divided into many groups and subgroups ...

AND under the hamburger menu in the Layers panel for quick access ;).

Is that available in the Windows versions? IIFC, at one time only the Mac versions had that feature.

You can set it to happen automatically if you want.

In Preferences > User Interface.

Thank you, this point is in even in english not really clear described, but the german "complete-sentence-translation", i quote, "automatisch scrollen, um Auswahl im Panel "Ebenen" zu zeigen" instead the simple and much more clear "Wähle Layer, statt Gruppe"  is sooo damned confusing "TRANSLATED"....  i never thought, THIS Behavior is meaning!
