Shaded mode seems to rely too heavily on picking an edge of a surface or mesh. If I select the “center” or the surface it will always select something beyond. I noticed working in one of our custom modes that is based off of shaded I did not have the same issue. Has anyone run into this or know of a fix?

Hello - can you please run
SystemInfo in Rhino and post the results?
@devinperkey - it appears to be related to the backface color setting- if backfaces are colored,selection becomes dodgy. I’ll get that on the bug- heap, thanks for pointing it out.
Hmm- that is only part of it, it looks like… still digging… Ah, it is the transparency on the backfaces:
When that is not zero, the pick goes through the object.
Thank you! We’ve been struggling with this throughout the whole R5 lifecycle. Hopefully it gets bumped in prio list.

Hi - have you tried setting the transparency of the backfaces to zero, as Pascal pointed out?
While this is not supposed to be a permanent fix, it could help you along until RH-53491 gets fixed.
It defeats the whole purpose of that display mode. It’s like a Shaded + Ghosted from behind hybrid mode that’s really convenient when modeling looking at the front of geometry or from the backside.
Yes setting the transparency of the backfaces to 0 fixes the selection issue but like you said I hope that is not the permanent fix because that defeats the purpose of having that as an option.
