Hey @Bobjt, thanks for bringing this up! I think it really does make sense to make this possible from a workflow perspective. It’s currently not possible, because from a code perspective it may not be so easy.
Note that you’re always free to file a request on GitHub. Feel free to do this right now!
Currently, the tools are enabled / disabled based on the type of the “current layer”. Maybe I should change that such that for example tile layer tools are enabled as long as at least one tile layer is selected. In addition it may not be so hard to consider a layer selected, as long as either it or one of its parent layers are selected.
