At the moment you can show and hide a layer based on a
false property value respectively, but you cannot do the inverse (show a layer if a boolean property value is

not that this is an awesome idea, but you can always hack this by using auto layout embedded in a frame with “clip content”. hiding the visible item would cause the hidden item to collapse into the frame and become “visible.”
This covers only one of many use cases.
