Description

In 2.2 I was able to select multiple layers in the table of contents using shift or ctrl, then click on a single checkbox to turn off or on the visibility of those layers.

Looks like this isn't working for 2.4 anymore and makes it a pain to turn off or on 1 layer at a time.

Not sure if this is a bug or should be a feature request.

I would say it is a regression.

Martin any ideas on this one?

#3 Updated by Martin Dobias almost 6 years ago

I would suggest adding functionality to check/uncheck multiple layers to the newly added visibility button within layers toolbar. It already contains buttons to show/hide all layers, so it could have two more items to show/hide selected layers.

I don't really like the previously used behaviour as it was non-standard.
