Some layer issues.

Post by teegee » Fri Apr 21, 2017 1:29 pm

1) Navigating through the layer list with cursor keys does not seem to select the layer that will be edited (by YE) it. Meaning, the layer that will be edited is the last one selected by mouse. Is that expected?

2) I thought I would be smart making a whole bunch of different sublayers in my main construction layer. This works fine, but made me wonder:

- Why don't sublayers take their initial settings from the parent? That would be much more useful than global defaults.
- Why can't sublayers be set to 'inherit' (or 'by layer'), so that if the parent changes linestyle, all sublayers with linestyle sey to 'inherit' will change at the same time.
