Unable to select

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have been working for some time with my VW files, and today when opened and created a couple new layers, then I wasnt able to select the objects in the other layers like they are "frozen". In class options I already checked and its setted on select everything.

I looked through the forum and found different threads.

On one they comment about the "Force Selection" option, and yes it does work, but now I need to do it in every different object that its in a different class.

Why did this happen? Is there a way to force select everything?

Thanks a lot.

If Force Select worked, the issue is normally that you have View > Layer Options set to "Show/Snap Others" instead of "Show/Snap/Modify Others".

There is a similar version of this for classes under View > Class Options. They're mutually exclusive settings.
