Can I identify a layer by clicking on it?
I have the layers tab open in my toolbox, so I can see all the layers listed. I'm wondering if there is a fast way to find a layer. I'd like to click on my image and (ideally) see the layer highlighted in the toolbox, so I don't have to search for it.
Thank you.

Thank you.
In its default behavior, the "Move" tool (Move) selects the topmost visible layer on the pixel where you click (ie, upper layers that are completely transparent on that pixel are ignored). This layer gets the blue highlight in the Layers list.

Thanks. That works.
