It would be nice if there was a visual indicator in the GUI when you have a selection active that is hidden(ctrl-h), it could be a simple small icon in the toolbar that lights up.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
Reminder of Hiding selections in Photoshop.

When hiding the marching ants for example, in Photoshop, by applying the keyboard short cut CTRL+H, I believe it would be helpful to have a visual alert to reming you that there is an active selection hidden. A visual alert or reminder would be for example a change in the colour of the menu bar or something of the sort. That would save us a lot of wasted time wondering what on earth is happening and not realising that there is a hidden selection somewhere
