I recently started using Clip Studio Paint for a lot of my illustration work. Before that I used to work only in Photoshop (and still do for some tasks). One feature that I have been searching for in Clip Studio (or Manga Studio) was the ability to group a range of selected layers into a new folder with a single keyboard shortcut. Up until a few days ago I thought that was impossible (I even suggested such a shortcut ability to Celsys). I resorted to creating a folder and then manually dragging the desired layers into that folder. Cumbersome, to say the least.

Then, one fateful day, I saw an auto action that suggested it might actually be possible: “Making a clipping folder”

Look! It reads “Insert into new layer folder”!

So, TLDR: duplicate set, delete all the actions and commands you don’t need and then assign a short cut. (You can also just duplicate the auto action and delete the unnecessary commands, if you don’t need a new set)

Long Version (with pictures):

1. Right Click anywhere in the auto action set and select “Duplicate Set”. In the dialogue box type an appropriate name for your new set. I use “My Own Actions” for this tutorial.

2. Your new set will be automatically selected. Select all the duplicate actions you don’t need and delete them.
3-deleteotheractions

3. Do the same for the duplicate commands that you don’t need. Then, right click on your auto action, select “Change auto action” and give it a better name. I was lazy here and didn’t do that… ^___^

4. Go to the menubar and select the option “Shortcut Settings…”
5-shortcutsettings

5. And lastly, assign an appropriate shortcut. I use Cmd+G because Photoshop has the same command. One less trick to learn for this old dog.
