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

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

Wouldn't it make sense to have the layer you've just picked in this
manner automatically become the selected layer?

Opinions please.

Hi Eric!
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).

Hey Joao,

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?
