How do I select the layer currently shown under the mouse cursor?
Hi guys

Is there a shortcut?

please guide me.
Do you mean an image with lots of layers ?

Use the move tool, click on the layer in the canvas and the layer shows in the layers dock.  Usual restriction, click on a solid bit of the layer, not a transparent area.

That is only temporary, to select the layer once you know which one it is, click on it in the layer dock.

An example here:

This is exactly what I wanted

Thanks for your help
