I would have assumed that if I have a layer selected in layers panel, that I can select sprites in that layer. However, this is not true. The editor is not concerned with the active layer, only the actual layer order when selecting.
I understand you can hide the upper layers to select sprites on lower layers. That works fine, but it seems easier and more intuitive that sprites on the selected layer should get selected when clicking in the editor regardless of upper layer visibility.
Does this sound like something that should be fixed?
