I have also found that putting my cursor on something solid in the layer I want to move--the middle of a filled letter of text, an object--will also move only the target layer.

But I like that "shift+click" trick, too.

Thanks—didn’t know about that, and it may help a lot.

You can't, but that usually is not needed -
what you are probbly missing is that by holding "shift" + click when
using the move tool, you will always move the current active layer,
not the layer with the first non-transparent pixel under the pointer.
(which is usually the situation when you'd be moving a layer you don't
want too)

No lock symbol next to the layer in the Layer dialog. I can lock the pixels of the layer, or the alpha channel, but not the layer itself.

Does that work for you?

When I accidentally move a layer, I do a Ctrl+Z and then make sure the select tool is on "Move selected layer"

Is there any way to lock a layer so that it cannot be inadvertently moved while working on it?
