[SOLVED] Is there a plugin to unlink all linked layers?
Hi all,

I'm working in a GIMP file with a lot of layers (200+), and I've been needing to link, move, and unlink various groups of elements frequently. Is there a plugin (or even a shortcut I'm unaware of) that will allow me to unlink my linked layers all at once instead of having to scroll through the list and unlink each one (while hoping I didn't miss any)?

Thanks,
Chris

Doesn't work for me! That was my first guess, but it only unlinks that one link.

Well, strangely enough, shift-clicking works with visibility in Layers and Paths (though not Channels). Doesn't work with links in any of the three, though.

Thank you, Ofnuts! It works perfectly in 2.8.0! You've made my life a whole bunch easier, and I hope that others who have this problem run across this thread. You rock! Big Grin

Most welcome Smile As you can see, not that hard to code, took me all of 5 minutes after dinner.

Yeah, it did look pretty simple! Regardless, I'm no coder, so I appreciate it nonetheless. Big Grin

To any other GIMP noobs like me, install that in your plug-ins folder, not your Python folder. Smile

Now there is a change in 2.8 v 2.6

In 2.6 both layer visibility and link can be toggled on/off by holding the shift key down and clicking on the appropriate layer icon.

In 2.8 only the visibility works, (except for layer groups) does not look like this shortcut works for links. At least I can't find it.

Ofnuts, how about an all-in-one plugin that will toggle visibility/links, swap visible/ non-visible (or links), remove non-visible layers (like the old sg script)
+ anything else you can think of Wink
