I had a thought about the naming conventions for the Texture Editor Layers...

Someone probably has already asked for this, but I'll ask anyway...

I would really appreciate the ability to name the layer names myself, it would really help when dealing with a larger number of layers. Using the "Procedural Type" as the name is not really accurate in my mind... I would add a user definable "Layer Name" column and keep the functionality of the current "Layer Name" but rename to something like "Procedural / Image / Gradient type" or something shortened the denotes the information being displayed...

Just a thought...

It would also be VERY nice to be able to turn all layer on and off via a toggle.

I would suggest the check mark just above the layer list window (see included pic with highlighted check mark). One click would turn on all layers, a subsequent click would turn off all layers and so forth..

yes that would be great workflow ehancements, as it seems to have many in lw8, maybe they've added these two (layer names and turning them on/off)

we're requesting layers custom names for a long time now.
