When working with multiple artboards, it would be very helpful to have artboard-specific layers displayed on the Layers panel as opposed to one long blob of all layers from all artboards.

This would be very useful with large format decals that have cutlines specific to an artboard but with a single BG image that spans across all artboards
Same request, but with more votes. Please vote there:
Photoshop artboard layer management is brilliant. Just use that one please.

This feature would be extremely helpful. Artboard specific Layers already exist in Indesign. Except in Indesign Artboards are called Pages. As you change which page you're working on the Layers Panel updates with it.
in the same way Figma handles layers inside frames. Each layer, our group of layers should be Artboard dependent and move with it even if its hidden.
Currently, keeping track of hidden layers on different artboards is cumbersome; specially when handling a file with multiple artboards and layers.
This would greatly enhance creating multiple comps.
Romek, it’s in the development.
When working with multiple board designs and multiple layers things get complicated. I would love to have an option to choose 'Single Artboard layers' and be able to work not with global but local/artboard layers just within a single selected artboard.
Alternatively, there could be 'global layers' (like global swatches) if one choses to use them.
This would greatly facilitate and enhance working in multiple artboard - multiple layers documents.
That would be awesome. Pleeeeeeease
It'd be really useful - currently kind of counterintuitive/hard to stay organized and there's already something similar in InDesign so it shouldn't be too hard to program, not sure why it wasn't there from the start but it'd still be a huge help in terms of organization and workflow - PLEASE put this in the next update or at least make a patch or something to include it !!
This is a much needed feature. Please prioritize as soon as possible.
pleassssseeeeeeeee this is so necessary.
+1 definitely would be a more productive flow
This could work, and would be nice.
However, what would also be nice, would be artboards that were assigned to layers such that I could turn them (the artboard) off by turning off the layer they were on.
What build do you have?
I have the same needs as you and as I know there will be canvas layer that will hold global art.
With the new Artboard-specific Layers all artwork is now locked to a layer.
This removes the ability to have artwork which spans Artboards.
We frequently need to provide individual artboards for production based on segments of a larger piece of artwork. (For example individual PDFs for each panel of a large tradeshow stand).
This doesn't appear possible with the new feature.

Separate layers option for each artboard, with option for a universal layers view panel. Maybe have it as a little icons, tabs, or a scroll window above the window for layers.
I did not get that the layers list is common to all artboards.... Now I understand I have changed them and effected other artboard :-0
In Sketch each artboard has its own layers.
