The shortcuts to change selected layers ( Alt + [ and Alt + ] ) currently only work among visible layers. If the layers within a given direction aren't visible, then the nearest visible group in that layer is selected instead. I want to be able to select layers that aren't visible via shortcuts so that I don't have to reach for my mouse every time to do it. Perhaps cycling through groups could be mapped to a different pair of shortcuts.

Have you tried auto select layer or are you doing something different

Auto select layer is useful but that's different. I want to be able to switch to a layer that isn't visible without having to use the cursor.
