So I was excited when I heard that Aseprite was adding Lua scripting. Unfortunately, I played around with it last night and discovered I couldn’t do certain things with it that I was looking forward to.
The bottom line is, I want to be able to take the active layer, make a group with the same name at the same level as the layer, move the layer inside the new group, and create a new layer inside that same group. The only thing on that list that I can do at present, according to the API, is make a group with the same name as the layer: all groups and layers are created at the top of the list, and while I assume I can move them around the same way I can move items in any Lua table, there doesn’t seem to be a way to move a layer inside a group, or a group inside another group.
Are these oversights in the documentation, or in the API itself?
