7.15. Select Previous Layers

The Select Previous Layers command selects the layers above the currently selected layers in the layer stack. The command highlights the layers in the Layers Dialog and makes it the new active selection. If the selected layers start at the top of the stack, this menu entry is disabled.

The keyboard shortcuts for Select Previous Layers and Select Next Layers can be very useful if you frequently pick colors from one layer to use for painting on another layer, especially when you use them with the color-picker tool, which you get by holding down the Ctrl key with most of the painting tools.
