Idea : Add a toggle to show layer group contents when filtering layers by name OR alternatively have an exclusive layer group filter.

I really like the new layer filtering abilities, but I think this one improvement could make it much more useful.

Right now you can search for a layer group using the name filter, however you can't see the contents of that layer group if the layers inside do not contain that same name. This ability would useful when you have many layers and groups and only want to view and work on the layers within a specific layer group.

Example: you have a layer group called Scroll Bar. Within this layer group you have several layers ("Bar", "Handle", "Arrow Up", "Arrow Down"). You could used the group filter to show the "Scroll Bar" layer group, which you then toggle open to show all of the layers it contains.
