It would be helpful to:

a) Easier create layer comps: e.g. a direct button in the layer window or an entry in its context menu or an other shortcut. Currently we have to navigate to the layer comp window and back.

b) Quicker navigate between layer comps e.g. simply using the arrow keys. Also they should become visible in the moment we navigate to them (customizable)

a) a workaround would be to add a keyboard shortcut to the "New Layer Comp..." menu item.
b) If arrow keys were used to change comp selection, what would move/nudge selections and layers on the canvas? You can assign keyboard shortcuts to "Next Layer Comp" and "Previous Layer Comp" to achieve what you want.
