10.11.  Select Next Layer

Revision History
Revision $Revision: 2336 $ 2006-08-16 scb

The Select Next Layer command selects the layer just underneath 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 bottom of the stack, this menu entry is insensitive and grayed out.

[Note] Note

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

10.11.1.  Activating the Command

  • You can access this command from the image menubar through LayerStackSelect Next Layer,

  • or by using the keyboard shortcut Page_Down,

  • or the “Down-arrow” key,

  • or simply by clicking on the layer name in Layers Dialog.
