In order to enable free object selection within layers, groups and stacks it would make sense to offer a y-axis rotation of the viewport camera around the active view to get a glimpse of what's going on while selecting. 


To see the effect in action click on the debug checkbox of this parallax CSS example:

That sounds sort of like Apple's Exposée, just for layers instead of windows. I could see that being quite useful for complex composites in Affinity Photo.


It might also be an interesting concept to apply to pages inside large documents, especially once Publisher comes out. Simply press a key for a bird's eye grid-view of all pages and click the one you want to go straight to it instead of messing about with a Pages panel like in InDesign all the time, which is either way too small or takes up way too much screen real estate when working on larger publications. It would also be flashy and Mac-like enough to be quite effective in marketing videos and the like.

Interesting idea! I've mocked up a quick example based on my earlier navigation concept I did for a client. Not sure how you'd show adjustment layers but overall it would definitely ease traversing through complex layer trees.
