how do I select multiple layers?

I am trying to tranfer (really just move to center of canvas) all layers at once.  (like it was possible to do with transfer tool in sketch)

Now I assume I can group all my layers and then move them, but that seems silly to do when I am trying to reposition everything.  I don't want it them in one group.

Grouping the layers is (for now) the only way I see to be able to move multiple layers at once. There isn't any way I've found to multi-select layers. Besides moving multiple layers as a group (without grouping them) it would be really nice the have "Align and Distribute" options available. Feature request time! Mike

I have the same question. It cannot be true that grouping is the only way to do this... I am really frustrated how they haven’t imcorporate all those intuitive and easy to use tools from Sketch...

Drag-and-drop layers is not a functionality that's in Adobe Fresco yet. It will be.

Is that drag and drop? Moving all layers at once, like in Sketch? Sketch calls it "transform all layers"

Hi Lucy. My apologies. I don't know how I so dreadfully misread your post. Michael's right, currently the only way to transform all layers is to group them (just tap-hold-and-drag them into each other), transform them, then tap the ellipsis icon (...) near the layers thumbnails and choose Ungroup Layers. I don't know whether there are plans to include a Transform All Layers button in the app but as Michael suggested User Voice is the best place to request it.
