More Efficient Placement of "Add Layer" / "Delete Layer" Icons

    I agree, the new placement of these icons is a poor use of space (and now a slightly harder target to hit as they're so close vertically to the next row of buttons). I've actually gone back to 14.2 because of the horrific new exporter but these buttons being moved has bugged me too. Definitely some poor UI changes in 14.3!

    The + icon is already in the viewer toolbar.

    If you ask me, the viewer toolbar should not be cluttered with icons which belong to tools though. A horrible trend. It should have viewer actions only, however, this having said, I absolutely like the layer selection drop-down. But that's me, others might love more icons there...It would probably be best to make this customizable, as well as the icons in the layer tool.

    My guess is they need more space in the layers tool for the upcoming re-implementation of the universal brush... :-))))))

    Yeah, I know about the "+" (add layer) icon in the viewer toolbar.
    I feel it is inconsistent to have it there and allow layer selection from the same place but not have "-" (delete layer) icon as well.

    Who are these people who never make mistakes? :)

    I don't mind functions being available from multiple places; if it supports various workflows, it does not bother me, as long as I can minimise the clutter for my workflows.

    I agree that it would be ideal to be able to add/remove icons from various places (mimicking the approach of the main toolbar).

    You sir, are a cruel man. :D

    I really don't need an icon for selecting the universal brush. Just bring it back via a keyboard shortcut; just make me shut up about it. ;)
