7.13. Select Previous Layer

The Select Previous Layer command selects the layer just above the active layer in the layer stack. The command highlights the layer in the Layers Dialog and makes it the new active layer. If the active layer is already at the top of the stack, this menu entry is disabled.

Note that on a standard Windows-style English keyboard, the default shortcut Page Up does not refer to the key on the numeric keypad, but to the other Page Up key in the group of six keys to the left of the numeric keypad.

The keyboard shortcuts for Select Previous Layer and Select Next Layer may be very useful if you frequently pick colors from one layer to use for painting on another layer, especially when you use them with the color-picker tool, which you get by holding down the Ctrl key with most of the painting tools.
