Temporarily hiding selection outlines

Let’s revive this suggested small but impactful improvement.
This seems to me as well like a low hanging fruit and deserves way more upvotes than merely 28.

+10000 on this!
coming from adobe products recently, it feels like very basic features to improve production flow are not yet added.
this is for sure one of them.

Please Figma. Please!

This allows for so much better screen-recording and editing… as it looks natural.

This is an absolute must. It’s a small thing but it’s very beneficial.

In Illustrator removing the bounding box and hiding outlines are even two separate toggles and it’s super handy. Just to name a couple of cases, it helps with setting type and balancing compositions. But most of all, it’s a huge help and time-saver when making changes to an element and comparing them to the previous step/s by going back and forth with Undo & Redo!

When the time comes for this feature, I think it should be a toggle and if possible - two separate ones (bounding box and outlines). Holding a key down could also be an option to hide both things if it’s Ctrl/Cmd. That’s the one you need to hold when performing Undo & Redo. Simply holding it down by going back and forth between previous steps and the current state would do the trick.

I suppose the low count of the vote so far is due to the possibility that a lot of people might not know this is an option in other software. However, by implementing it, Figma can help popularize this via all the tutorial videos and update posts that would be created after the update.

Well, one good thing (hopefully) with Adobe acquiring Figma might be this tiny but powerful feature, since the idea originally comes from Adobe tools.

+1 for this feature as well. It’s a feature I have used frequently with Adobe products for years.
