Might be. But you see that it being non-self-documenting is as good as having no indicator... > As for the merging of icons, how do you handle toggling > visibility/locking/chaining/etc? Addressed in the OP. Toggle-visibility is as now (click on composite icon). Toggle-chaining must be moved elsewhere; the OP suggests moving to near lock-transparencey (where, IMO, it belongs anyway). (It might be duplicated in a context menu of the icon too.) Locking - I have no idea what you mean here... > This means you'd have to do two > clicks to change any non-active layer's state (one click to activate and a > second to change visibility, etc.) That makes things particularly troublesome > for changes that users make to multiple layers at once, like visibility and > chaining. Toggling visibility is a non-issue. Chaining MAY BE an issue (although I can't comment - I never needed chaining). If judged important enough, toggle-chaining on non-active layers may be also implemented as Alt-Click (would be self-documented if mentioned in right-mouse context menu).
