You can also change the Layer output the invisible item is in to one of
the five layer outline colors without changing the appearance of other

Click on the Modify Layers box to the left of the timeline and select
Red Outlines near the bottom (or one of the other colors) then
everything in that layer will appear as a Red Outline incluing Alpha
zero objects. To return the Layer to Normal select Normal collor from
the same menu.

The Layer color outlines can be very helpful in aligning objects on
different layers.
