Selecting layers
Is there a way to select a layer for editing other than by clicking on it in the layer panel?

I currently have a >200MB xcf file with nearly 100 different layers which I need to adjust before I merge then down a bit. I have found that you can find where the layer is in the list by holding the left mouse button down while hovering the cursor over it, but it always then disappears off the screen and it's a chore trying to find it. I have all the layers named, but it would be a lot more convenient if there was a way to select the layer through the image itself?

RE: Selecting layers
With the Move tool you can click on it, if you have selected the "set layer or path as active" in Edit/Preferences -> Tool options/Move Tool

You can also use the keys Home/end/PgUp/PgDn.
