When you click to make an anchor point and then want to create another anchor point, it's hard to judge how the line is going to look, especially when you just made a bézier curve.

It would be great if we could see the path in real-time, as this would save a lot of time ctrl+z'ing or moving the anchor points around post-click.

How is it possible! Photoshop had this option so long time ago, and I doesn't knew about it... It's unbelievable. Why no one of teachers or all these how-to video don't tell about it? It's so handy...
By the way - people from adobe team - can you tell please when this feature was introduced in Photoshop? Just curiosity.
