Bug Description

How do you think about groups of layers?

I am interested in an outline editor for this application area.

I suggest to work with hierarchical relationships. I imagine to manage the grouping of layers in a tree view.

I assume that this is an use case that will be supported by an ObjectTree window.

The heirarchy is already possible with layers. If you use the Layer dialog, it does support sub-layers as well.

A hierarchical reorganisation is not supported be the dialogue " Layers..." (Shift+Strg+L) so far.
I do also not see that sub-layers can be created over the menu.

I have got the impression that layers can be reordered (up/down) but are not groupable by the current user interface.

I have discovered that sublayers can be created if a specific option was selected in the dialogue "Add layer".

There is already a kind of tree view involved in the dialogue "Layers...".
- It seems that there are no GUI controls available to change the hierarchy level. (I do not want to jump to the XML editor view.)
- A node can not be dragged to an other position.

Indeed, it's not possible to change hierarchy level yet
