    Merge Layers Question

    Is there currently a way to merge all visible layers in one step without having all the invisible layers deleted?

    Not that I've found. There have been a few posts suggesting they put in a way to select and edit multiple layers (merging, deleting, etc). So hopefully we'll get some way to do it in a future release.

    Not sure it would be a time saver (depends on the amount of layers you have working right now), but you could save the file as a .psd, merge the layers in Photoshop, and then bring it back into ArtRage.

    Nothing is easy to the unwilling.

    Thanks SOS, I suspected that was the case. It will be helpful if they get a chance to introduce more flexible merging options. Another workaround has been to open two instances of AR, one with a copy of the file, merge the original and then paste in the lost layers from the file copy. That saves bump lighting lost in PSD or PNG exports. But that's almost as time consuming as just merging down a layer at a time. Thanks for being always on top of these things - always a suburb help.
