[Gimp-user] Moving Multiple Layers

OK, I'm going going to assume I'm just doing something wrong, but in
the past, whenever I wanted to move multiple layers together I would
just click the "Lock Pixels" icon (the little link picture in the
layers menu) for each layer I wanted to move and then, just move them.

Now,  I can't move anything. Not even the layer that is highlighted.
The only thing that will move is the background.
Is something different?

A couple of things there:

I am sure you are using the correct linking 'icon' - the chain next to the
visibility icon but 'lock pixels is something different.

quote - The only thing that moves is the background.

Moving a layer that contains transparency such as text.

Either, make sure you click on 'solid' pixels or toggle the `Move the active
layer' option. Otherwise the next solid layer under the cursor will move, often
the background.

The other thing to check is the layer mode. Three options, layers - selections -
paths. Use the first.
