Wish: group command for marked layers

…like known from Photoshop. Best, if the user clicked on the layer manager before and not at the viewport, than the shortcut Ctrl+G could do it too.


Since some of us don’t have Photoshop, can you please provide a little more explanation as to what you are wishing for? Thanks!

If two layers are marked and the user press Ctrl+G than a new layer is created and the previous marked layers are part (children) of them.

This should be easy to script, but you probably won’t be able to use Ctrl+G to call it up…

Should be able to work, no? Load the script or run or fire it off from an alias that you put in Ctrl-G in Keyboard?


Sure, I was just thinking that if you wanted to keep Ctrl+G as “Group”, it woul be hard to detect what the user wants to do…


Hmm, not actually sure I can do this… Not sure what mechanism I can use to get the set of layers that are currently selected in the layer dialog… Can’t find where this info is exposed…


Yeah, I did not look, but that seems like the hard part.


If the shortcut Ctrl+G is a problem, an other one could be good too. A first implementation could be an entry in the layer RMB context menu.
