Photoshop: While holding [CTRL] and rightclicking to bring up a list of the active layers under the cursor, include the color coding of the different layers in the list.
This way you could code your masks in pink, your overlay layers in green etc etc, which would help navigating in a complex layer structure.

Ah, sorry, I was not explaining clearly enough!

I'm not after a way to actually assign the colors of the layers when I ctrl-rightclick, but rather just seeing the layer colors that have been assigned since before.

What I am after is basically something looking like this:

Seeing how easy it is now to filter by layers, rename, etc, it could be a useful enhancement.
