Hey Fred - in theory the Photoshop Document component should return the layer list as its second output - although it will only give back ArtLayers at present. Also to come is a document list component that will return all the active documents.

As for the behavior of the R input - can you give me a concrete example / specific components behaving badly?

Very nice! Thank you (again) Andrew!

All kinds of strange behavior indeed! At first glance, the R input doesn't seem to work properly on a couple components (CS5).

A PSD document layer list would be the cherry on top. I imagine it could be a little tricky with all the different layer "types" in PS!
