display both knots and UV curves for a surface?

I just find that, for a surface, if "Show Knots" is on, UV curves can't be displayed in Wireframe mode.
 
Do I miss something? Thanks!

Hi Surfactant,

 

Youre not missing anything. Its a way of decluttering as the curves often tend to hide eachother making people confused. The IsoCurves appear when needed e.g. when in I-Form (see picture below). Aside form that most people are working in shaded mode (I believe) where Knots & Poles are avaiable - is there a need for combining? Do you have a workflow requiring that?

Hi @Sandman   Thanks for your reply!

 

I just noticed that Alias users work mainly in the Wireframe mode. They generally depend on UV grids (dotted) and knot lines (solid) to monitor the flow and the structure of most surfaces closely. I think the workflow is good for class A surfacing. That's why I have the question in the original post.
