Better organised layers panel

The layers panel is terribly unreadable. With a lot of nested frames, groups and layers, it is impossible to navigate it easily.

It seems to me that a slight lifting of contrast and icons would significantly increase readability. It would also be a good idea to give the user the possibility to edit the colours of individual frames or groups.

The example I made to illustrate what I mean :smiley:

I’d like to vote for “Dream” background with the icons from “Better (colours)”. Don’t know that I want coloured backgrounds on the layers panel, I’d rather have the panel a bit muted so it doesn’t distract from my design work.


I really like this suggestion. A number of UI elements in Figma are too low contrast and washed out, and your Dream (colors) mock looks great.
