My eyesight is not good and I use 2 monitors with 2 different settings   for ease of use. I find   that working on a single layer (image) the image  gets  distracted  with surrounding  images/colours.

 

Yes I can select  layers by clicking them  on or off but it would speed up workflow if I could  click on it and hold the mouse button down on it  for 3 seconds would automatically turn OFF view of all other layers.

 

So this is more like an accessibility issue than anything else. Just  a suggestion.

 

Thank you.

Doesn't Isolation Mode do what you want?


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

I think, as @carl123 suggested, that Isolation Mode might satisfy your request:

Perhaps instead of "isolation mode", which sounds a little confusing, perhaps use "solo" instead. I use a digital audio program and when you are working with twenty tracks hitting "solo" mutes all but the relevant track. Same idea. Easy peasy.
