Scene view: deep selection#

To select items behind others, click on the same place repeatedly to cycle through objects by depth.
Sometimes the UI can get in the way of selection. The pickability controls can be used to disable selection of those objects. Or disabling their visibility using the Scene visibility controls.


I have authored a package called NSelection that helps with selecting troublesome items in the Scene view.
Once installed, press Ctrl while right-clicking in the Scene view to get a list of objects that are beneath the cursor.
