Select Objects by Layer within a Block

Hi there,
I’m having an issue here, not able to select objects by layer (right click on layer > select objects) when inside a block. Hiding the layer works, but selection of all objects on layer doesn’t work for me.
Is that not supposed to work?

Hi Julian -

No. The only thing that is selectable of a block in the viewport is its instance, which basically is a single point that contains the information it needs to be able to display that particular instance of the block definition.
