I jumped from 2.7 to to 2.80 and I am having trouble with the new weight painting workflow. What I would like to do, is to weightpaint specific vertices and faces in edit mode while seing the color code of the weight painting. But all I can do is either use the brush in weightpaint mode freehand style, or apply the weight 'blindly' in edit mode and then check the colors in weight mode. Am I missing something? This was way faster for me in 2.7. I am looking for suggestions of a better workflow for 2.80. Thanks for being nice.
In the screenshot below I would like to select the individual faces. That's only possible in edit-mode, right? But in edit-mode there is no visible color coding for the weight painting, right?
