Current behavior

When you hide a layer and then click another layer to edit it, you can’t see on the layer list which layers are hidden without hovering over every layer.

Expected behavior

When you hide a layer and then click another layer to edit it, you can see on the layer list which layers are hidden.

Also, I think that we should turn the icons over and show the eye with a line next to hidden layers.

Makes sense to me, that's what GIMP - GNU Image Manipulation Program does.

I assume photoshop does this also, can someone please confirm?

Makes sense to me, too. Now, that I'm thinking about it, I know why I always expect the opposite behavior for show/hide layer 😄

With Photoshop the eye without line means also visible:

I've got a branch that always shows the visibility toggle. Is that what you had in mind?

We’re getting there! : D

It’s overwhelming to see all those eyes. I suggest we always show the icons of hidden layers only.

I should have swapped the icons before making the “Expected behavior” GIF. It would be more clear. Excuse me. :)

Yeah that makes more sense, I'll update it
