temporarily display "invisible" shapes as "ghost" shapes

+1 vote
I've got some "invisible" shapes (nodes without line or fill) and it would be really nice to have a way to temporarily switch their display to kind of a "ghost" (very light gray/fill) to be able to move them around.

Otherwise it's really hard to manipulate invisible shapes you can't even see; I just want them to be invisible when I make use of a diagram (print or export)

You can use the "Current Elements" section of the palette for this (find and select your invisible shape in that section and from the shape's context menu choose "Select Matching Elements"), or you can select invisible shapes via the Structure View (you can "step" through all your nodes using the arrow keys).
