I normally use Layer Comps a lot for Visibility.

Today I needed it for positioning.

If during the making of the comp I also check "position," shouldn't picking the comp shift the position of layers?

When switching between comps, nothing is changing... 😞

Hi @Signfeld ,

 

The position switch refers to the physical position (x position=0 , y position=10) on the canvas not the layer order. 

 

If you want to capture layer order as well, consider using Snapshots on the History panel. This should help.

Thanks! I had a small intuition it might not be a bug, so didn't call it that. Just couldn't think of your reply...
