When you work with a lot of layers, you spend a lot of time making your layers visible/invisible to get the desired view at your data.
There a risk of error when doing so (you can easily forget a layer).
What would be great is to have a Layerset manager, where you could store all the layers visibility.
So you could switch all the layers visibilities by just changing one drop down menu.
In the Composer Manager, you could also assign a Layerset to a map (instead of the "freeze map content" option, which is not very practical when you want to modify the contents).

@Paolo : no it's not layer groups.
This feature is called "layer comps" in Photoshop, "layer combinations" in Archicad, and so on...
If allows to take "snapshots" of the layers (and layer groups) visibility, and then restore them easily.

Very nice Olivier. I will for sure have lots of use for it when dealing with multimap composers. I was using layer groups until now. Your tool avoids duplicating layers in project. I have a request in the dedicated hub https://github.com/redlegoreng/layerCombinations/issues/10
Do you think the feature request can be closed?
