Single click, this time a via a vertical checkbox group.
Hmm, or two if it's just one vertical group. Something like this:
- left-click on unselected but visible layer selects it
This one below is not intuitive:
- left-click on invisible layer makes it visible and selects it
- left-click on selected layer toggles visiblity (*)
- right-click opens a dialog to set layer properties such as
color, name, short name
(*) If it's desirable that the selected layer be always visible,
then selection could move to the least recently selected
visible layer or such when the layer is made invisible.
This above is a valid consideration, what to do when someone tries to
select an invisible layer...
Lets go back and look at Gabriele's mock up:
What about that as a UI component? It is getting there. I don't see a
color association however.
