I have a handful of Gimp images that have 50+ layers.
With the move tool's 'Pick a layer or guide' selected, I can quickly find where a particular layer is in the stack with a left click. However, as soon as I let go of the mouse, I've lost where the layer is as the selected layer switches back to the layer that was selected prior. Now I have to remember about how far down the layer, remember the layer name and dig to find it so I can work on it.
Wouldn't it make sense to have the layer you've just picked in this manner automatically become the selected layer?
What you describes was the default behaviour of the GIMP uyp to the 2.0 series.
When the new behavioyr was introduced, people perceived exactly what you are asking for. Then, the old behaviour was made available via a setting in the preferences dialog (in the tool setting, I believe).
Hmm... all I see is 'Pick a layer or guide' and 'Move the current layer'. Neither of these do what I'm talking about. Exactly what preference are you referring to?
Thanks, Eric P.
