That option is "Merge" or "Merged" something (I can't recall the full
option name) in the tool options of, for example, "Select by Color"
and "Selection through the Magic Wand". I thought that any operation
on the selection so made would be carried out on the "combined output"
of all the bottom layers. But I'll explore it more to see if I can
achieve the kind of effect that I described earlier.

Thanks & regards,


p.s. I have Gimp on Fedora-7 and not on Windows that I am using to
connect to the Internet.
