Short description of error
When the "Show Emitter," checkbox is turned off, the emitter object still displays in both Cycles & Eevee render preview. The emitter object is correctly hidden when rendered with F12. This makes it very difficult to preview particles that are emitted from an objects volume.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Create particle emitter
  2. Turn off "Show Emitter," under the particle render settings
  3. Switch to Cycles or Eevee viewport render.
