I'd like to have a color overlay view of the Blend if (like we've got for regular masks).
Certainly, we can do it manually by adding a Color fill layer beneath the active layer.
But creating and deleting this check layer are additional unnecessary steps.
Why not to add a default option inside the Blend if panel?

This option in Select & Mask window:
In the panel itself, tick "Color Overlay", tweak the color to "purple-pink". When you change your Blend If sliders, it does the "thing". When you are pleased with the blendIfs sliders positions, untick Color Overlay.
