I'm painting a mesh with two materials, but I don't want to paint over the other materials, so I have the "face selection masking for painting" on. The problem is that it shows these white mesh lines. Is there any way to turn that off, so it's easier to see what I'm painting?

I don't remember this being a problem in 2.79

    $\begingroup$ Simply turn off overlays in the top right corner over there by the gizmo, and then toggle back when you need to see your selection outline again. $\endgroup$ Jul 16, 2019 at 13:27
