    Layer Group tip (disappearing layers)

    Hi, the other day I experienced some unexpected layer pallet behaviour, where it seemed like a layer group had disappeared. Iím not sure if itís documented anywhere, but Iíve discovered it's possible to put a layer group inside another layer group. Unfortunately though, the sub-layer group looks the same as top level layer group (not indented or anything), and will disappear from view when you close the parent group.

    The way I found my missing group (which I must have inadvertently dragged and dropped), was to open each layer group, scroll down through the layers until I found another layer group heading, before I had come to a close group button. (see the attached screen shot for a very simple example).

    Edit: (just for completeness) I've updated the image below to show how to ungroup a layer group by dragging its title up to the top of the layer panel.

    Hope this make sense Ė let me know if not (itís late).

    I guess the lesson here is to set layer and group names and keep merging down when possible.

    Cheers, Jono

    Layer groups is great to have. Maybe the Artrage UI could be enhanced to better account for embedded layer groups? Perhaps a clickable "+" sign could be a different color or have (n) next to it to indicate there are n groups within this parent. In fact, the top level could indicate group numbering.

    Is there a suggestions area?
