Select next Layer up/down keyboard shortcut?

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to create a keyboard shortcut to select the next adjacent layer up/down? As opposed to needing to click on it.

I have tried searching, and looking at the available keyboard bindings but haven't found anything suitable, but i could very well be missing something. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Only for Designer and Publisher. This is the Designer menu but the shortcuts work for Publisher too.

Those items move the selected layer up or down (forward or back) in the layer stack. They are not equivalent to the Select Next/Previous items in Designer or Publisher.

I saw that, but my point is that selecting and moving a layer forward or backward in the layer stack is not equivalent to only selecting the next or previous layer. Besides, both require a current selection. Otherwise, those items are greyed out, so none of them provide a selection function as such.
