When i click on a layer (in layer palette), it is auto showing the path on the canvas. It didn't do this in CS5.
I am able to turn off "Target Path" in the View > Show > Target Path menu option. But that is only temporary.
The path should only display on the canvas when i click on the path (on the canvas) with a vector tool.
Basically, i want the CS5 behavior. :-)
I agree, the default whether to show the path should at least be a configuration option (which of course would imply that there would need to be something to click on to show it).
Keep in mind the Escape key can be used to quickly hide the path.
Thanks for the feedback.
This request has been discussed in depth in several other threads.
It's a painpoint we're aware of and the changes for it will not make it for the CS6 release.
There are ways to work with it, such as what Noel has suggested with the Esc key, you can also use the Enter key (with a vector tool selected) to hide the boundary line, or as you have suggested as well. CMD/Ctrl + H to show/hide toggle.
