Dot selection

Hi McNeel,

when I click on a dot… 99.99% of the time I don’t want to select things behind it

But you will.
The reason is a Dot is not geometry like a surface that can mask objects in a Shaded or Rendered display. A Dot is just screen “decoration” so there isn’t anything to filter the picking through.

Sorry.

Hi Arch - If you open the Filters toolbar (click Filter in the status bar) you can Ctrl-Right Click on Annotations to set only annotations (including dots) to be selectable for one selection.\
