It is possible to move otherwise unrelated layers if they are set as "linked" - To mark a layer as "linked", one should click just to the right of the "eye" icon on the layers dialog - a chain Icon shows up.
All layers marked with the chain Icon will move (or be transformed) as a "temporary" group, regardless of which actual layer group they belong too. https://pasteboard.co/I7oGHLh.png On Wed, 27 Mar 2019 at 15:12, Maxime Martyr via gimp-developer-list < firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > Greetings Gimp developers! > > I am trying to convince friends that open-source software Gimp can replace > proprietary software Adobe Photoshop. > > They like Gimp but they say it misses a feature which make it unsatisfying > to replace Photoshop. > > They say Gimp doesn't allow them to move several layers at once and that > really annoys them to have to move each layer one by one. > > So I searched if the feature that they need exists and I found that it is > possible to create groups of layers to move several layers at once as a > group. > > They answered that they knew this feature already but they need to move > several layers from different groups at once so they need to move several > layers at once not independently from groups. > > Then I told them that I was going to ask to Gimp developers if they could > add this feature and so here I am. > > Dear Gimp developers, could you please add the possibility to move several > layers at once independently from groups? > > Sent with [ProtonMail](https://protonmail.com) Secure Email. > _______________________________________________ > gimp-developer-list mailing list > List address: email@example.com > List membership: > https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer-list > List archives: https://mail.gnome.org/archives/gimp-developer-list > _______________________________________________ gimp-developer-list mailing list List address: firstname.lastname@example.org List membership: https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer-list List archives: https://mail.gnome.org/archives/gimp-developer-list
