Re: [Gimp-user] grouping multiple layers

Of course, the documentation in this case is an obvious mismatch to

The current behavior is useless, under any workflow I try to imagine (after all,
if the layers are to be flattened, there is no reason for place them
in a group to start with);

I'm glad I'm not the only one who had trouble with my imagination...

Anyway, the "right" fix for this wouldbe to allow multiple item selection, as
Alex puts it.

Meanwhile, I've put together this small Python script that does just that:
move the selected (linked) layers to a target (active) layer group.

Just copy it to your plug-ins folder, and mark it as executable (not
needed under windos)

Muito obrigado, Joao!

No, it's been there for ages :)

I'm talking about how you can make multiple selections of assets
(brushes, gradients and so on), if you switch their view to 'list'
rather than 'icon'. It should work for all kinds of lists including
layers, and for assets it shouldn't be limited to the list view. It
just hasn't been done yet. Like every feature, it needs a contributor
to write actual code.
