I find the LWM Layer implementation to be chock full of missed opportunities: the Layers Panel could be SOOOoooooo much better than it is, and with minimal, non-rocket-scientist type coding too.

That said, one thing that bugs me is the darn CLICKINESS of using Layers. It's very easy to lose a particular combination of Foreground/Background layers. TOO EASY. And then you gotta do a lot of fussy clicking to get it back.

Anyway, I just wanted to pimp Tama's MAKE LAYER SET/CALL LAYER SET scripts: they're free, they're simple, and they work fine. Maybe it'd be nice if they had more 'slots' (I think 5 would be great) but for pure simplicity they're hard to beat.

2 sets of Layer Sets, toggle between. That's pretty much it. Enjoy.

Sensei, I'm a bit confused, which plugin provides the "Layer Preset System"? It doesn't actually seem to be described on the page you linked.

It's not described.
But is on video link above, and part of TrueArtModelerPack.p and TrueArtModelerPack_x64.p files.
It was added in July 2015 or so.

Hmm, I last updated my modeling pack in May 2015, and don't recall seeing many notices of additions/changes since then. Is the functionality Win-only or Win + Mac?
