Mesh Edit Mode

Cube in edit mode, turn on overlay option from one or more of these sections. Toggle display overlay off, and see the selected overlay remain on screen.

Event Timeline

This is a known issue with edit mode.

@Clément Foucault (fclem) @Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) I thought the conclusion was that we should allow for completely hiding edit mode overlays when Overlays are turned off?

This was needed anyway for the workflows where users might have a different viewport set to Rendered, where they can see the edit mode results without edit mode overlays.
