I just saw in Affinity Photo that they have a live update when you flip through layer blending mode. Its something I've wanted for Photoshop for years! It would be a nice feature to add.

I love this idea, so annoying having to select every different blend mode to view the effect. On the PC you can arrow up and down to cycle through them but not on the Mac. Been waiting years for it too, any idea on when it's coming Adobe???

Hi Dale, Holding Shift and pressing the + or - keys on Mac with the Move tool selected will let you cycle through a Layer's blend modes quickly without using the mouse.
