Can't view object hair particles on mesh in edit mode.
Closed, ArchivedPublic

Description

System Information
Operating system: Windows 7 x64
Graphics card: Radeon Pro Duo Polaris

Blender Version
Broken: v2.80.75
Worked: v2.79b+

When in edit mode, object hair particles are not visible. This makes it hard to create vertex groups around already placed objects when they are not visible in edit mode.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
See attached Blend file.
Tab into edit mode and you will see the object particles are not visible. Seems there needs to be a visibility toggle for edit mode. In 2.79b, the eye toggle worked in both object and edit mode.

This is a known limitation in 2.80 for now, and will likely not be fixed until the new hair system is implementation.
