Ishi Posted December 3, 2014 Share Posted December 3, 2014 As some of us might have noticed with other programs that has support for layers, there is this Merge Visible option under the Layer menu. Photoshop, I think has had it for a long time now. What it does is basically merge all the visible layers ONLY with top to bottom rule of course and it leaves the unchecked or hidden layers alone and not merged with the rest. The Flatten feature, on the other hand would merge "all" the layers, regardless if they are visible or not. There are situations where I would wanna hide layers for later use but not merge them with the visible ones just yet that I'm confident to flatten at that moment so a Merge Visible feature for layers is in deed more efficient for this matter than the Flatten feature. This removes the need for me to copy the layer I would want to exclude from flattening unto another file. The new Copy Merged feature somewhat merges all visible layers into my clipboard that I could paste to a new layer on top but that's another thing. I also think a "show all" and "hide all" feature under the Layer menu would be fun as well. Your opinions please... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
