Background layer

Is it posible to see handles on background layer - when on front layer?
In FL when I select all on the mask layer, front layer became transparent and while on front layer I could see position and length of handles in light grey. Would like to have this in Glyphs too.

If you like to draw over an outline in the background, try to select one node that is near a node in the background and hit cmd+shift+A.

Smart. Could we have this “snap to” option and transparency front layer in some upgrade version.
