    Hi Ben

    Thanks so much for this feature request. While it doesn't include the highlighting, I'm happy to be able to point out that right clicking on the composition has a Select option at the bottom of the context menu, that has a sub menu listing all the layers that have pixels underneath your cursor position.

    I understand it's not live-highlighting like you requested but hopefully it will be able to help you figure out which layer is which!

    Hi Petrus

    We have not seen something like this internally.
    - What is the version of your operating system e.g. Windows , macOS 12.1, etc?
    - What are your hardware specs? CPU/RAM/Video Card

    Would it be possible for us to examine the files you're seeing this on? Could you upload it somewhere and send a link to aebugs@adobe.com.

    Hi Adriene,

    Happy to tell you that there's a toggle and a shortcut already available. In the top level menu, simply click on Composition > Preview > Cache Frames When Idle to turn it off and on. You can also use Cmd+Shift+I on a Mac or Ctrl+Shift+I on a PC to toggle.

    The ability to respect skip frames in Cache Frames When Idle is a great feature request. Thank you!

    Hi Luke,

    That error is frequently caused by scripts, as one of the available scripting mechanisms is to wrap several project changes into one "Undo Group." Because the script has to explicitly start and end a group before and after doing the changes, it is possible the script may start a new group before ending an old group or something similar.

    Since this coincided with GeoLayers being installed, it seems likely that that may be the culprit, and you may want to reach out to that developer.

    Hi Onur,

    Because the Project panel can be opened with a keyboard shortcut (Cmd/Ctrl+ 0), if you put it in it's own panel group, and use that keyboard shortcut to toggle it on and off, it will behave exactly like you're hoping for! I frequently use this technique to dock it on the entire left-hand edge of the application so I can toggle it on and off, like a sidebar in many apps.

    Other panels have the ability to be opened with keyboard shortcuts and behave the same way but it doesn't seem like the Effects Control Panel is able to -be assigned a shortcut (maybe because it's possible to have multiple Effects Control Panels) however, the Effects and Presets Panel can be opened with Cmd/Ctrl + 5.
