Thank you for the tip.

I'd suggest a little hint (cycles only) or at least a note in the tooltip - Probably, this isn't the only feature. Because these days we more and more use the better preview possibilities with eevee, but not in every case users can be aware of checkboxes "cycles only" - most time, you try to find your mistake, which could be time consuming.
