How to activate the right layer fast?
What is the fastest way to activate the right layer for editing when multipal transparent and background layers are overlapping in gimp?
For example in the photoshop I would click left and right mouse buttons on an object of a layer that I need and a list of layers which have visible objects at the area where i click will appeare and i will choose the one i need(which I meant)
In Gimp, I find it difficult for me to access the right layer fast, when I have many layers. What is the trick?

RE: How to activate the right layer fast?
AFAIK th eonly "fast" layer selection is method is the PgUp/PgDown/Home/End keys. It may be possible to map the same actions to mouse buttons but I have yet to find out how.
