I was taught how to use AutoCAD in high school and I grew to appreciate the ability to SELECT objects on LOCKED layers, not modify them, in order to manipulate objects on unlocked layers. Been using Rhino for a couple months and it’s frustrating that this is not possible, I have to create a line to use or unlock the layer. Nowhere can i find how to fix this, or if there is even this option currently. Maybe I’m missing something. Just to reiterate and make this clearer, how does one make it possible to select objects on locked layers? I would like to be able to use the LOCKED curves and objects I already have without messing with anything, for things like using the extend option in the line command to create a line on a layer that references another which is, once again, LOCKED. I NEED this for commands with which I need to actually select something not just reference it’s snapping points. As you can tell, my frustration has built up over time as the time lost has also.
Any help is appreciated,
