Select Multiple Layers

Is there a way to marquee select multiple layers? If there are many objects in a scene, it take a lot of time to select each object individually. Is there an alternative method to speed up this workflow? Maybe there could be a way to select all layers, select a couple of vertices and a script to deselect all layers that don’t have vertices selected.

[Ctrl][Shift][A] is the shorcut to select all layers

Do you take advantage of the Group Layer ( ?

The actual script mechanism do not give access to this kind of information (vertices selected)… maybe this toggle layer plugin can help you ?

Thanks. I found out the skeleton layer works pretty well for this sort of stuff.
