An image is worth a thousand words : Left, Photoshop CC, right Photoshop Cs6. In both versions, I can hide the result of a vector mask by shift-clicking on the mask's thumbnail in the layers panel (big red cross). in Cs6, i then saw the path (italic "vector path of layer 0") and could edit that. in CC, when a mask's result is not shown, i don't see its path in the path panel, and can't edit that. Workaround : use the properties panel and set the mask opacity to less than 100%, but it requires 2 clicks...
Fixed in 19.1 or later.
