    Lock Layers in a Group

    I may be completely missing something here but it would be very nice to be able to group a number of layers and then lock that group so that it can't be altered accidentally while working on some other area, without having to go and lock each layer in the group one by one. For me layers are both a blessing and a curse in digital painting. They make so many things possible and easier and faster. But I am constantly forgetting about them. Forgetting to make a new layer. Forgetting to select the layer I wanted to work on and not realizing it until I had spent ten minutes working on the wrong layer. I am working on something now with a lot of layers and when I have an area to a certain stage of development I group those layers to form a whole. But as far as I can tell it's not possible to then simply select that group and lock it so I can't accidentally work on a layer within it. I have to lock them individually. Which is part of the curse of layers in that they get in the way of just painting. Am I missing something? If not is this something that could be implemented in a future update?

    Suggestion noted!

    In the meantime, you can toggle the Group Visible setting to hide all layers at once and avoid accidentally painting on them.
