        I actually joined this board to suggest the grouping/nesting of layers but have just seen this. Sorry PJ but the suggestion that Photoshop functionality can be emulated by grouping layers with cmd-g doesn't actually apply to the whole layer, it only applies to objects which have been grouped and then placed on a layer.

        What I think Sam means, and I certainly do, is for Indesign to have layer nesting ability in the same way that Photoshop does, for instance this example I've indicated here:

        I have a point of sale image here, it has a common background and separate layers for Adidas shoes and Nike shoes just to illustrate the point. I would like the ability to drag the Image and Price layers into the Brand named folder, as you can with Photoshop.

        Hope that's clear because this function would certainly help me organise my files better.

        Thanks in advance

        To add to this comment : IF multiple items (from diff layers) are grouped THEN they should STAY on their own layer, NOT jump to one layer for the group.

        PJ G. What you are showing is not the same. We need things to stay on different layers, but SELECTABLE as a group. Selection is a big part of the time you spend on a job.
