Merge layers without flattening

In GIMP, is there a way to flatten layers without merging them, to create a new “summary” layer? I used that all the time in Photoshop, and miss it dearly.

Thanks, Eric

Is the “New from Visible” item in the Layers menu what you’re looking for?

You can do layer groups.

New from visible will do what I want. Thanks so much.
