Description

When developing more complex styles you sometimes want to see the single layers of the style independently. It would be great if the symbol layers had checkboxes to toggle them on and off (like eg map layers do).

It's possible in master (3.0). There's a checkbox at the bottom of the symbol layer properties widget which allows the symbol layer to be disabled.

That is very hidden and not suited for a quick-iteration workflow. Any chance of having it look and work like the canvas' layer toggling as in my mockup?
