How to locate the active layer in the document?

Post by wmjordan »

I am working with some large documents which contain many small layers.
When I click on the layer pane, the layer is selected, but it is not visible in the document window (somewhere else outside the visible area). How can I quickly make it scroll into the view?

There is no special scroll command for that.

The closest thing to this is the command "View > Fit to Selection" which zooms to the selected layers.

Another way is to zoom out ("View > Zoom Out") until the selected layer is visible and then to zoom in ("View > Zoom In") again. When zooming in, the layer remains visible.

Hi, Martin,

Thank you for your reply.

Fit to Selection command does help. It is faster than scrolling around the document and looking for the active layer.

I hope that there will be a command which can Scroll to Show Active Layer.
Or optionally Mark Active Layer on the Map panel.
