Drag to show/hide/lock/unlock multiple layers/groups
It gets a little crazy when there are a lot of objects and a lot of groups. It would be really cool if you could drag down through the lock/visibility icons like you could in Photoshop or Illustrator to very quickly show/hide or lock/unlock a series of items instead of having to keep creating deeper and deeper groups.
I would like the same functionality as Photoshop to show and hide a layer. In XD the button is a hoover. So when I have selected the layer the hoover won't show.
And in Photoshop I can move over the hide layer buttons, so that I can hide several quickly. In XD hiding a layer is slow.
• show/hide icon to the left of the layer name, always visible. Easy to click and drag more layers to hide/show them.
for now I realized an easy workaround to do multiple layers at once is to shift+select the layers you want to hide and use the key commands to show/hide [CMD + ,] (also works for lock/unlock [CMD + L])
If I have multiple items selected and I click to show/hide or lock/unlock it should perform the action for all of the selected items.
If I have 3 items selected in the layer panel and I click the eye to hide a layer it would hide all 3 items so I don't have to click hide 2 more times. This should work the same for lock.
Or, how about adding show/lock icons to the property inspector? Then you could select objects and click an icon to change their status. Also It'd be helpful when you're holding a mouse and don't want to be bothered by moving the cursor to the other side of the screen or switch to the keyboard.
