I have a feature to suggest: The layer filter options in the layers panel have been amazing, I use filter by type all the time. I really would love to see a Sort by layer mask option. I often have very complex photoshop files where I have to transfer all of the layers to a new template and if any of the layermasks aren't linked to their layers there can be some pretty big problems. I have to manually hunt through all layers and folders and make sure each layermask is linked before I move things. If there was a button to sort by layer mask so I could see all those layers at once would be amazing.

Hi Rachael,

You can filter by which layers have masks:

You want a "Layer Mask is Linked" and "Layer Mask is not Linked"?
