This means you can see which areas are going to block or blow as you pull them in. Hard to describe but much easier to see. It also works for (highlight) Recovery but appears not to for Fill Light.

Ciao ... John
Doh, I just realised I forgot to mention this tweak, but you beat me to it! Well spotted John, Thanks

Any other contributions of smart tricks and tweaks for Photoshop are most welcome everyone..

Look, I'm an old man. I shouldn't be expected to put up with this.
