Photoshop :: How To Toggle Visibility For A Layer Group And All Its Sub-groups

Sep 1, 2012

As I am using Layer Comps more frequently, i find myself frequently needing to toggle the visibility of layer groups, which contain several sub-groups. I tried all the shift + cmd + option - click variations, but none seems to do the trick.
here an example:
Visibility           Type           Name
OFF                Group         Row
ON                  Group         Button 1
OFF                Text            Help!
OFF                Shape         Bg
ON                  Group         Button 2
OFF                Text            Help Please!
OFF                Shape         Bg
so what i am looking for is a short-cut so that when i click on the visibility of the Group Row, it will turn on the visibility of all the layers contained.

Illustrator :: How To Toggle Layer Lock / Visibility In CS6

Jun 16, 2012

How to toggle the layer lock/visibility in CS6 than in the earlier versions.

It seems that there's more padding around the lock/visibility icon, and you have to be really precise to click it... increasing the row size doesn't really make any difference, as the "padding" is still there. Wheres in the earlier versions clicking anywhere within the toggle box would enable/disable it.

Photoshop :: (Toggle Mask Visibility) Shortcut?

Jul 4, 2013

Is there a keyboard shortcut for "Toggle mask visibility"? I can do this by ALT-clicking on the layer's mask, but I would like to assign a shortcut for this on a button on my Wacom Intuos 4 drawing tablet. So far I haven't found a menu shortcut for it, nor have I found a way to add my own (Edit-Keyboard shortcuts) as the function isn't listed there.

Photoshop :: Tween A Group Of Groups

Apr 9, 2013

How can I tween a Group of Groups to scale?
I use my Pshop groups in a similar fashion to how Flash uses Display Object Containers. I have one group containing the rest of my groups serving as a 'master group' so I can perform global transformations to all of my layers. For some reason, it stopped letting me scale.
Using frame animation (yes I'm using frame on purpose, not motion), I would like to get the master group to tween a scale and tranlate. I can get it to translate it's XY coordinates, but for some reason the scale doesn't work anymore. It was working before but not now. I even tried converting the group to a smart object but that doesn't work, and that's fine, I try to avoid smart objects where possible.
How to get this to work or what I might have done wrong to the file?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Using A Rule To Toggle Part Visibility

Jun 12, 2012

I have a simple Assembly for a Frame that I made with Frame Generator. I'd like to use a rule to toggle the visible of some of the framing members.

In the sub assembly (called Frame0001:1) I created a rule:

(I have a variable called LeftAngle, and the bar I want to toggle is called Bar1.)

If LeftAngle = 90 then
Component.Visible("Bar1") = False
Component.Visible("Bar1") = True
End If

I am sure this is VERY basic, but I can't get it to do anything. There is no error message - just nothing happens.

I know the rule is running though - it will change other parameters in response to the If Then statement.

AutoCAD Inventor :: 2 Step Visibility Toggle While Drafting

Sep 2, 2013

I am trying to draft an assembly - when i want to hide some components I go to the tree and right click on the part/assembly and select Visibility.

There is a square next to visibility on the right click menu (like a 'stop' button) and nothing changes when i select it.

When I right click on the tree a second time, a tick appears (like in modelling/assembly view) and when selected it disappears.

AutoCad :: How Multiple Lookup Toggle Created Without Any Visibility State

May 7, 2013


Since weld symbols are regularly used in my day to day work, i thought of making a dynamic block. I had zero knowledge of dynamic blocks at that time. I realized that its actually very difficult to make a type of dynamic block i wanted. So instead of breaking my head to create it, its better to downloaded it.

Attached is the drawing i found on a forum. Its extremely cool, that's exactly what i wanted. The multiple toggle is extremely useful. That's what i wanted but was unable to create.

How this multiple lookup toggle were created without any visibility state?

Illustrator Scripting :: Ungroup All Groups Then Create A Single Group?

Jul 30, 2013

I'm having trouble getting a script together where I can ungroup all groups in a document, then put everything under a single group. Everyhting I'm working with has a single layer, but for some of the arts I'm importing have groups within groups ect. To run certain actions I've made properly after I need eveything to be in one, single group.
I searched for an answer and found this (wirtten by Carlos Canto)
function ungroup(whereToUngroup, group) // where to ungroup? layer, document, other group?
for (i=group.pageItems.length-1; i>=0; i--)
group.pageItems[i].move(whereToUngroup, ElementPlacement.PLACEATBEGINNING);
But I'm having trouble getting it to work.

Maya :: Group Node / Child Mesh Visibility

Jan 3, 2012

We recently upgraded from 2008 to 2012. Sometimes, on saving a scene file, some of the meshes within a group node "disappear". They basically behave like they're on a hidden layer -- even though they're not. You can see the transform and shape nodes in the Outliner, but in the viewport they're gone.

I can fix this by un-parenting the missing meshes, at which point they reappear -- and then when I reparent them as children of the original group node they're fine. But when I save the file and reopen it, the meshes are (sometimes) invisible again.

You might think the group node itself is hidden or attached to a non-visible Display layer, but it isn't. And there are other meshes within the group node that show up fine.

How I can permanently avoid it? I'm working on fairly complex environment scenes, and having to selectively unparent/reparent meshes each time I open my files is a real hassle.

GIMP :: Layer Modes Don't Work In Layer Groups?

Jan 20, 2014

For the projects I'm working on, I use the same template beneath the different layer groups of each different project. When I move a "color" layer into the group, however, it doesn't show up like it's supposed to. It behaves as if the 'color' layer is a blank layer, and has no effect. Is there any way to get this to work or?...

ALSO: I can't open images by URL.

GIMP :: Layer Groups And Layer Modes / Opacity?

May 14, 2012

I just downloaded GIMP 2.8 (on Windows 7) and was using the layer groups to organize a project I'm doing. I noticed that whenever I put the layers into the layer group, nothing I do to them actually affects the image (for example if I change the opacity of the layer, it doesn't actually change). If I drag them out of the layer group they function perfectly; sometimes if I edit them and then drag them into the group they also work fine.

As I was writing this post I tested dragging a layer set to "dodge" into the group and it didn't work. It kept the dodge setting, but it looked as if it was on normal; however, I drug another layer set on dodge into the group and it worked fine.

Is this feature just broken on Windows, or does it not work like I thought (where you can drag them in and edit them individually, or edit them all by editing the layer group itself)?

Photoshop :: Keyboard Shortcut To Toggle Specific Layer On / Off

Jul 17, 2013

I just recently discovered the keyboard shortcut for toggling the current layer on and off and it is an incredible time saver.  Is it possible to create a keyboard shortcut dedicated to toggle a specific layer on and off regardless of what layer I am working on?  I use Photoshop for painting and I'll have a layer set up like an overlay, with my line drawing set to Multiply blending mode at about 25% opacity. 

However, as the painting progresses, I need to turn that layer on and off continuously to be able to see my painting without the lines overlayed.  I know I lose a lot of time having to go over and turn the eye off and then back on over on the layers pallete.  I've tried setting something up as an Action, and had a shortlived success, but when I added new layers or moved them around after setting it up, it stops working.  I have to say, it was my first attempt at creating an Action of any kind, so there may be a way to keep it working regardless of what I do to the other layers, Having the ability to somehow dedicate a key for quick toggling of my drawing layer would be another tremendous time saver.

Photoshop :: Reordering Layer Groups?

Sep 11, 2013

When I try to move layers or groups under an open layer group, it ends up inside that group instead. For example:Drag Group 3 between Group 1 and Group 2. It ends up inside Group 2, below Layer 2.Drag Group 3 between Background and Group 1. It ends up inside Group 1, below Layer 1.The only workarounds are:Close the layer group.Use Cmd-[ to move it "down" once more.

It seems to me there should be a more intuitive way to move layers, based on the indentation of the groups. Dragging a layer on a divider in the green area should move it at the top level, above background.Dragging a layer in the blue area should move it inside Group 1.Dragging a layer in the magenta area should move it inside Group 2.

Dragging a layer in the orange area should move it inside Group 3.The appropriate section of the divider should highlight to indicate where the layer will end up (currently the entire divider is highlighted)

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Use Layer Group Filters For Layer Translation (LAYTRANS)?

Oct 2, 2013

A drawing with hundreds of layers should be simplified for our customer by decreasing the numbers of and renaming the layers (there is yet no target file existing). In order to solve this, I generated group filters and assigned every single layer to them (all printing properties are assigned to objects). The layer groups show the desired layer structure after the transformation (still a three-digit number).

Unfortunately, the LAYTRANS dialog doesn't let me choose layers by group filters or remarks. It seems as all the work was for the birds.

Is there any way to translate my layers using filters or remarks?

I use AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010.

Illustrator Scripting :: Write A Script That Renames A Layer And Group Within The Layer?

Jul 25, 2013

I'm trying to write a script that renames a layer, and group within the layer, then an object within the layer (but not a part of the group) and have it run in a loop.
Here's what I've got so far, the group rename doesn't work.
 #target Illustrator 
var doc = app.activeDocument;
 idLayers(doc)//IRename layers
idGroups(doc)//Rename groups
 function idLayers(doc){

I haven't put in anthing to rename the single object yet since I cant even get the group rename to work. I suspect that the group re-name section isn't working because I'm either using bad syntax or an invalid command.

Photoshop :: Merge And Export Layer Groups Separately Into JPGs Via Script?

Jun 26, 2013

I’m trying to take several layers from a group, merge them, and export them into jpgs, then move on to the next layer group. Saving all the files in a new directory called "images" My layers are organized into groups, I’d also like to be able to have the script ignore layers that end with a specific character (or some other tag)


This one exports the top visible layer(s) as a jpg with the same filename as the .PSD

function createFolder( folderObj ){ if( !folderObj.parent.exists ) createFolder( folderObj.parent ); if( !folderObj.exists ) folderObj.create(); }; function exportSFW( doc, saveFile, qty ) { var exportOpts = new ExportOptionsSaveForWeb( ); exportOpts.format = SaveDocumentType.JPEG exportOpts.includeProfile = true;//default false exportOpts.quality = qty; if ( saveFile.exists ) saveFile.remove( ); doc.exportDocument( saveFile, ExportType.SAVEFORWEB, exportOpts ); };

Photoshop :: (Nested Layer Groups) Warning Message Disabling From Application Settings?

I am using Photoshop CS6 and if I have nested layer groups whose depth is greater than 5 I get the following error message. "This document contains nested layer groups that may change in appearance if opened in applications older than Photoshop CS6".

I can click on "don't show this message again" before pressing ok, but can i disable it from showing somewhere in the application settings? I want to enable it sometimes and sometimes not.

- The "Reset All Warning Dialogs" button from Edit - Preferences - General is not very usefull because I want to keep other messages' settings, only this one should be affected.

GIMP :: Align Single Layer In A Layer Group?

Jun 7, 2013

Why can't I align a single layer that is inside a layer group? The align tool would always select the top most layer group as the 'boundary' for alignment, thus automatically selecting the whole layers inside of it and align them as a group.

Is this a bug or just GIMP's weakness? It definitely reduces the layer group's usefulness.
