I would love to see Local View work for selected mesh components in edit mode, instead of only being available in Object mode. I know I can use Mesh>Show/Hide>Hide Unselected and Reveal Hidden, but I find it’s much more convenient to have this as a toggle bound to the same hotkey with the same functionality as Local View. Maya works this way and I think it works great. Thanks!
Absolutely this. I’d add that Reveal Hidden unhides everything; there might be things I’d like to keep hidden while isolating (which is exactly why I don’t recommend the Hide / Reveal combo for isolating in Object mode). The Local View should definitely work for mesh components. Please.
