I have a solid with an open mask applied and I also have another shape layer. When I click off the mask layer I can no longer see the mask. Is there a way so that I can still see it when its not selected? I need to be able to see it so I can move my shape in line with it.
Im pretty sure this is a simple thing but Im a bit rusty today. Had a break from AE for a fe weeks. I forget so fast.
If the layer is not selected or if multiple layers are selected the mask paths go away.
An alternative would be to temporarily apply Effect>Generate>Stroke to your mask path. That will keep it visible.
