Layer Manager grouping from plan view

If you select a group of layers in plan view, is there a way to have them high lighted in Layer Manager when it is opened to a sign them to a new layer group .

Layer manager will only highlight one of the layers selected today. What are you wanting to do when you get into layer manager with the layers selected - are you wanting to change a common property like layer group or linestyle or lineweight - most properties can be changed in the properties pane with the exception of Layer Group - is that what you are after?

Adding Layer group to the properties pane woukd solve the request if that is the case or maybe a command to allow you to add layers of selected objects to a layer group?

I have been wanting to be able to change Layer Group in the properties pane for a very long time now. That would certainly help my workflow.
