    I'm using Photoshop 7. When I select a shape layer, it gets this white
    hairline outline around it. Is there any way to turn this off? I find this
    distracting and I always have to select a different layer each time I make a
    layer effect change to be able to see it properly. I can tell perfectly well
    which layer is selected by looking at the layers palette.

    Thanks

    Well, when you create a shape layer it is really creating a path, so my
    first suggestion would be for you to either rasterize the whole layer
    or just the vector mask (right click on the layer mask to do just the
    mask and not the whole layer).

    Thanks! Rasterizing the vector mask was exactly what I needed.

    That's pretty drastic. When you do that you lose the vector information
    and it's not editable as a Shape any more. Why not leave the Paths
    palette open and just click in it outside the Shape path?
