GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 157164
Allow operations to act on multiple layers
Last modified: 2005-04-05 11:45:51 UTC
This report is from Markus Hanauska originally, but I haven't found it, and am
creating as an enhancement request.
It would be nice to be able to select mutiple layers with Ctrl- or Shift-click
in the layers dialog, and then have a certain number of operations act on all
the layers selected. At a minimum, we should be able to move all the layers as
if they were locked, and apply the same filter to all the layers.
Other possibilities would be duplicate and copy, and the usage of the various
tools, but I'm not quite sure how those should behave, and have asked Marcus to
explain a bit more. Perhaps he could do that here.
You can already move and transform linked layers. Using GAP you can also apply
filters to all layers. I don't think that selection multiple layers in the
Layers dialog is a good idea. It would be better to use layer groups here which
would make this a duplicate of bug #86337.
Do you agree with my proposal to mark this request as a duplicate of bug #86337 ?
Marking as NEEDINFO until the question has been answered.
No response, so I am marking this as duplicate.

Sorry - for some reason I didn't see this.
I guess this is more or less a duplicate - except that the implementation of
this doesn't necessarily imply implementing layer trees (with layer trees, we
get this one for free, though).
I thought this might be low-hanging fruit. I'm OK with the duplicate label.
Sorry for the delay.
