Keyboard shortcuts for the layers palette

One suggestion: I think it would be useful if the user can use the keyboard (arrow up and down) to move from one layer to another one. I don’t know about other, but I use a lot the layers palette to test different options for the design before selecting the final one. I guess I am not the only one. It’s a bit annoying when I want to preview the different options and I need to use the mouse.
Would be also possible to select more than one layer with the caps key so I can delete more than one layer at once?
Thanks! Glyphs is a great app

You could write a little script and assign a shortcut. I’ll see if I can come up with a code sample.


#MenuTitle: Display Next Layer
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
Switches to the next layer of the current glyph.

Font = Glyphs.font # frontmost font

if Font and Font.currentTab:
	currentLayer = Font.currentTab.activeLayer()
	if currentLayer:
		currentGlyph = currentLayer.parent
		availableLayers = currentGlyph.layers
		currentIndex = availableLayers.index(currentLayer)
		nextIndex = (currentIndex+1)%len(availableLayers)
		nextLayer = availableLayers[nextIndex]
		offset = Font.currentTab.layersCursor
		newLayers = Font.currentTab.layers[:]
		Font.currentTab.layers = newLayers
