Ungroup, Dissolve and Delete Groups

Ungroup Layers

Releases layers from a group, or a group from another group (Win: Shift+H, Mac: no default shortcut).
Left: Layers in sub-group at the end of a higher group; Center: Layers moved down and now appear two levels upwards; Right: Layers moved using Ungroup and now appear one level upwards
All selected layers or groups will be ungrouped and moved below the group they were contained in. This is especially useful when the containing group is right at the bottom of another group. If you would move the layers below by yourself and then execute Refresh Layout, the layers would then be shifted two levels upwards instead of one. In these circumstances, use Ungroup instead to only move them one level upwards.
If a group is selected and is at the highest level already, the group will be dissolved completely.

Dissolve Group

Dissolves a group (Win: Ctrl+Shift+FwdDel, Mac: no default shortcut).
Select either the group header or a layer contained in the group and then execute Dissolve Group. It will remove the group but will not delete all contained layers, as Delete Layer / Clone / Group would. It will release the layers one level upwards, either to a higher group or move them out of groups completely.

Delete Group

To delete a group, use Delete Layer / Clone / Group.
