[Handouts] 1-Click Show Players/Journal

I searched through here and found a few similar, but nothing exactly like what I want. Currently when I am creating my game sessions, I have to set my handouts to only in the GM journal/edit so that my players cannot see them until the game. During the game this becomes tedious as I have to open each handout, edit it, select "All Players" for the Journal, save it, and then click Show Players. My suggestion is to re-code the "Show Players" button. When pressing it, it would reveal a drop-down menu (much like the +Add button in the Journal) Asking "Which Player(s)?" It would list each individual player or have all players. Selecting one of these would automatically add that player or all players to the "In Player's Journal" section. I believe that this will give GMs a better opportunity to keep information hidden until it is needed, and streamline play.
Actually clicking the "Show Players" button does change the permissions to show it to everyone. That changed a few updates back.

I will test it again, but every time I press show players it does not show the players unless I manually change the permissions. Perhaps it's bugged. At the very least I still stand that having the ability to choose 1 specific player vice all players would be expideint. 
Absolutely, if we could selected who to show too, that would be very useful.
I tested this tonight during my regular game. I had a handout assigned to only the GM folder/edit. When I pressed "Show Players" it did not auto assign it to the Player's Journal and did not show it to the players. I still had to go into the hand out, manually set it to the Players Journal, and then press show players.
