How to merge layers like in Photoshop?

When painting in photoshop, I always create a new temporary layer to paint on so that my base layer won't get messed up as I work on a new part of the picture. Once that part looks good, I merge it down with my base layer. (I do this hundreds of times, so I have to merge them, otherwise I'd be left with hundreds of layers)

 

How do I merge layers this way in substance painter? Or, if merging layers is not possible, is there a way to use this workflow in substance painter in any other way?

Hello @Revenant,

 

Unfortunately, you can't merge layers togethers. But you can add a Paint effect in the layer itself, which will act like a secondary layer.

You can still not merge them, but it will prevent having too many layers.

 

Best regards,
