NextPreviousHomeMoving the VISIBLE checkbox next to Layer selection request

lightads | a week ago | 10 comments | 200 views

I have a feature request.
Would it be possible to move the "Visible" checkbox, next to the layer selection drop down?
It would be easy to see quickly if a layer is active or not.

Here's a image of what I mean

Moving this checkbox to the other side of the layers dropdown is problematic for some languages.

what do you think about an eye icon to figure visible ?

Yes, an icon is possible.

I'm a bit puzzled because I rarely use this checkbox myself. Today I am going to discover the power of this GUI element!

I use this checkbox with every project especially when I want to identify the layer activity. It's a very useful feature. Being on the far right is functionally awkward. It would be great if there was a toggle on/off for it as well.

In fact while you're thinking about this why not consider making a toggle ON/OFF for the SHIFT+CONTROL keys that mutes everything else except the selected layer?

I use this often as it's easy because because because of the hotkeys

yes, we find this kind of things in audio sofwares tracks : Mute and Solo button.

Photoshop uses <Ctrl> + , (comma) to toggle visibility of the active layer.

Luckily this combination is not yet used in BluffTitler, so that can easily be added!

Just my opinion but i think checkbox or buttons are easier than shortcuts that are not easy to memorize when you see the list, not to mention that we should not go wrong with the list of other softwares. I think shortcuts are good thing for standard and common operations (CTRL+C, CTRL+X, CTRL+V...) but for the rest .....
And with visual icon no need to memorize, no need label, no traductions problems.
Think of the old people (like me) who no longer have the memory they had at 20.(😊).

In version, the visibility of the active layer is toggled by pressing <Ctrl> + ,

Thank you for your request!
