I SUSPECT (very much so) it is / was one of those ‘things’ that IDIOT USERS do when they either click-on-something - or - perhaps - scroll-out-too-damned-far (because I can’t (realistically) see anything on the SCREEN - and something happens-somewhere that neither I (nor anyone else) ‘expects’ -
AND YES - from the software-code viewpoint it’s a ‘CHALLENGE’ but from the ‘reality’ viewpoint - it’s easier to draw a box around some things - say ‘select’ / ‘copy’ - open a new model-file - paste - and keep-on-trucking!
A LOT of things in life are like this - - a trade-off - between the mentally stimulating and rewarding exertion of effort to achieve a mentally satisfying ‘find it and fix it’ - versus the GET ON WITH THE DAMNED PROGRAM (and meet your boss’s deadline
(notice how it is never YOUR deadline but always your BOSSs deadline?!
UGH UGH UGH! -
On the other had if I’d had 300 objects, none of which were easy to select, - then - yeah - I’d want to solve the problem but all I had was two sections of railroad track and a bunch of dimensions
thanks anyway - but I hate to waste your (VERY) valuable time!
SINCERELY YOURS, Bill
