Mask path shows when editing parameters of an effect; would like to hide the path
on Jan 25, 2017 at 6:03:43 pm

I have a mask/path on a solid. Apply the Vegas effect. Select "none" in the pop-up on the actual mask which hides the mask.

When I make parameters changes, such as the number of segments, in the effects tab, the path becomes highlighted and I have to deselect/click in the background to hide the actual path to get a look at the effect.

I watched a tutorial by Andrew Kramer and noticed when he was adjusting the various parameters of an effect, the mask/path didn't highlight...the changes just appeared.

Been looking around in preferences and haven't hit upon how to hide the path. Any ideas?

Another great way to hide everything in the window; use cmd+shift+"h" on Mac or Ctrl+Shift+"h" on Windows (I think...).
Press it again to toggle it back on.

That will hide not just mask paths but everything else as well, outside the actual image you're working with.
It's probably one of my most used keyboard short cuts.
