Would it be possible to show color-coded layers in color somehow, when clicking layout/canvas with the right mouse button? There appears the gray box, where one can select desired layers. In this view there should be color coding, it'd help to comprehend the complex layout structures better. For example, a little color-coded cube in front of the layer name would do the trick. Thanks!

Hi, I'd like to feature request layer colours when right clicking somehwere on the image to select a certain layer.  Currently the layers in the layer panel can be given a colour but the associated layers when right clicking on the image do not inherit this colour.

Thanks

This selection menu needs much more improvements. E.g. icons which will indicate layer kind for faster orientation.

Being used to finding the layer I'm looking for through the right click menu, I think it would help a lot of people to organize their psd structure better if this was implemented.
Thanks for your time.
