Oh, you mean Tool Options palette and Outline mode? Thank you!

Two more notes then.

1. It would be great having this mode on by default. It would do no
harm when only one layer is present and it surely would work best in
the sutuation described above.

2. The "Grid" mode is actually "Outline+Grid". Renaming it would make
the mode a tiny bit more discoverable.

Again, thanks for the pointer.
