Is it possible to move all layers together? Move all layers at once

Recommended Posts

I have searched for this and all messages suggest it is not possible.

 

Scenario:

I have an image with multiple layers. I increase the size of the canvas. I want to move all layers down (together) so I can draw above the original image.

 

Can this be done? 

 

The only work around I have found is to move each layer one at a time and match the co-ordinates for each layer - at the bottom left of the screen

I think I do not quite understand the problem described so forgive me if I have not fully grasped what you want to do.

 

You can create a new layer wherever you want in the stack, it does not just have to be on top.

 

Just find the layer in the stack you want to draw above directly, highlight it and use "Add New Layer" and a new transparent layer will be created immediately above it. If it is not where you need it to be in the stack, wherever it is created, you can always move it up and down the the stack later as required.
