Swap layers via hot key

  • I am in a glyph window and use the hot key to open the "Copy/Swap to Layer" window. If I choose "swap to" it moves the active layer to the chosen layer but does not do it vice versa.
    The Swap Action in the Layers Menu of the Inspector does swap the layers.
    Shouldn’t there be the same behavior?

    With swap you move the current layer to an other layer. Flipping would also move the layer glyph to the source layer.

    The action menu in the layer inspector pane will be gone in the next version.

    but you can still use:

    g = CurrentGlyph()
    g.flipLayers("foreground", "background")
