I would like to ability to view a mask (toggle on/off, either in greyscale or with some other color overlay) instead of having to imagine what actions I'm taking in my head or looking at the tiiiiiiny thumbnail in the layer list.

This already exists in Pixelmator Pro in the "Refine selection" mode, the overlay there is yellow. I would love that, but for mask editing, please

Noted! I'll ping the team about it.

+1 for this.

As a workaround, I've been making a half-opacity red layer directly underneath the layer whose mask I'm editing, to help me see what's coming through the mask. It's a little clunky, but it does help.
