Search box for layers

John Tapsell
Hi,

  I have around a hundred layers, and it's really cumbersome to navigate.
I was wondering:

What do you think of a having a filter/search box for the layers?  To let
you jump to a layer quickly

We can probably enable/implement type-ahead search for the list items
(layers etc.), but adding a whole search box might be a bit of an
overkill. It depends.

In 2.9 we have a new action search dialog.  It might be interesting to
include more than just actions in the search results, such as images,
layers, paths, brushes, etc.

In any list in GIMP, have the keyboard
focus on the list, and hit Ctrl+F.

Heh, right, I tried (again) with no image open...

So maybe we need a way that always works to trigger
that search entry :)
