Distracting Selection Mask Layer

Since a few version ago, by default when I select something using selection tool. A new selection layer mask would be automatically created, and I don’t appreciate it. Is there any toggle/settings i can just check/uncheck so it didn’t appear on my layer box?

Menu bar → Select → Disable “Show Global Selection Mask”


Also, do not deactivate current selection, because in this case when doing a new selection, a new selection layer is created, and deactivated selection layers stay in layer stack (activate/deactivate is something very useful when you need to re-use some selections multiple times)

Do unselected instead if you want to remove a selection

thanks, it works

having selection layer mask is indeed looks useful, too bad I keep pressing the wrong layer when there’s too much of it.
