Track matte pick whip – modifier to NOT turn off matte visibility

Maybe I haven't tried the right combination of modifier keys but this feels like an opportunity to save a few clicks. I'd like to select a layer matte without the matte layer disappearing. I'm currently selecting the matte layer with the pick-whip or dropdown menu, then turning the matte layer visibility back on with the eye icon.

There isn't a modifier key implemented as yet, but we are talking about it if/when we could add it.

First: I absolutely love selectable Track Mattes. I use them quite a lot right now, but more often than not I find myself needing the Track Matte layer to still be visible. Could this be realized with a shortcut perhaps? Maybe Shift-Pickwhip will leave the visibility of the layer on?

I'd also love ot see this. With this new system there are many times I want to keep a visible art layer as a matte.

+1. These days, I'm keeping my matte layers visible as often as I want them hidden.

I frequently wish this was the default behavior but a modifier key would do just as well.
