[Gimp-user] Questionable implementation of layer list / groups

Coming from some other application perhaps, still not familiar with
Gimp. Nobody pretends that Gimp works the same as 'some other'
graphics application - why should it? There is a learning curve

Coming from what is actually considered the norms of interface design for GUI
applications. Which is that they are (intuitively) easy to use.

The answer is that it should follow the same norms of interface design as any
other software with a list box control. A multiple list of layers it should be
possible to select multiple layers and right click for a list of actions that
can be applied to multiple layers simultaneously e.g. Group. It is much slower
to have to create a group and drag one layer at a time into it, not the least
because Gimp has to re-render each layer when it gets dragged into a group if
that group has a different visibility setting.
