This is a feature I need very often as sometimes I am uncertain with some objects on the page so I leave them hidden. When I use the "Show/Hide all other layers" this feature is not useful to me as it is dumb logic and doesn't remember my hidden layers.

1 Answer 1


Hold down the Option/Alt key when clicking the visibility icon next to a specific layer in the Layers Panel.

This will toggle visibility for all other layers.

If a layer was already set to "off" before the initial Option/Alt-click, when you toggle things back on, it will remain set to "off".
