Lightroom Classic 12 / Windows 10 - Mask panel disappears whilst making adjustments

I've just upgraded to LRC 12. Generally all seems well but I find that the stand-out mask panel (whether full-sized or minimised) now disappears while adjustments are made to any mask selected, eg. exposure, contrast, any adjustment at all. The panel re-appears on left-clicking in the image area or on pressing 'Enter' (but on pressing 'Edit' it closes altogether). Not sure if this counts as a bug or as a feature but it's certainly annoying if there are several masks in play as it's all too easy to forget which one is under adjustment!

I can confirm this happens if the mask panel is not docked under the Histogram.

You might consider moving the Mask Panel, docking it under the Histogram.

I believe this is intentional. It's done so the panel does not obscure any part of the image while you make your edits.

Thankyou for that. Most helpful! Which said, I rather wish Adobe had let us choose whether or not the free-floating panel 'suppressed'
