Is there any way to not have to “cycle” through layers via Layer button, but e.g. keymap some Modifier-key + 1-8 num keys to directly switch to a Layer?
+1! I have also wished for this feature.
I haven’t got around to checking if this is similar to an existing feature request, and am full on with work atm, but it might be worth you submitting a new feature request to ensure that the suggestion is given some attention.

- SCREEN_MAIN (it was missing!!!)
- LAYER_CONTROL %i
The second one allows to change the active layer and switch to control screen , but it’s not mapped to the keyboard yet. You can access it by:
