2D Animation : Dope Sheet - Grease Pencil, selected layer becomes unsynchronised with the Toolbar- Properties - Layers
Confirmed, NormalPublicTO DO


Windows 10, GTX1660

Broken Blender 2.83, latest daily build (today)
Broken Blender 2.82 release

  1. File, New, Select 2D Animation.
  2. In the Properties Panel, delete the Lines and Fills Layers.
  3. In the Properties Panel, click on the 'New Layer' Button.
  1. Problem 1.

GP_Layer is shown in both the Properties Panel and the Dope Sheet - Grease Pencil Panel, although the GP_Layer in the Properties Panel is the only one highlighted as selected.

  1. Click the '+' button in the Properties Panel/Layers. This adds a new layer to both Panels. Again only in the Properties Panel/Layers is the correct layer highlighted.
  2. Click on GP_Layer in the Properties Panel/Layers. This now highlights the correct selection in the Dope Sheet - Grease Pencil Panel.
  3. Click on the '+ button in the Properties Panel/Layers. This adds 'GP_Layer.002' and makes it the selected item.
  4. In the Dope Sheet- Grease Panel, 'GP_layer.002' has been correctly added, but it is not the selected one.
  1. Problem 2.

Dope Sheet - Grease Pencil = GP_Layer selected
Properties Panel = GP_Layer.002 selected.

  1. Problem 3.

In the Dope-Sheet-Grease Pencil Pencil, select the 'Down' arrow. The 'GP_Layer' MOVES UP?

Any combination of UP/DOWN arrow shows a disconnect between the selected item in the Dope Sheet-Grease Pencil Panel and the Properties/Layer Panel.

This is equals in 2.79, 2.80 and 2.81, so we cannot consider it as bug but as ToDo. What is actually missing is update the active channel in the Dopesheet.
