Select "through" objects?

Recommended Posts

I remember a handy feature in AutoCAD: holding down "shift" while clicking on a series of objects stacked directly on top of one another, each click would select the next item down in the stack.

Does anyone know if there is a way to do this in Vectorworks? At the moment, I'm just sending to back until I get the line I want.

One way:

Select your stack of objects

The OIP gives feedback on the entire stack.

Click on the 3-dot icon near the top of the OIP to have it display single Object Info only.

Click on the little left arrow / right arrow icon beside it to cycle through all the selected objects.

Click on the little 1-dot icon between the arrows to observe the selected object flash - this helps to identify which of the selected objects is being targeted.
