Data Tag Tool - needs "select coincident objects" mode


I've brought this up before ( How to use 'Data Tags' to label plant objects without adjacent plant objects hijacking the tool? )


This really does need to be addressed.

It happens almost always with grouped plant symbols.


With any plant that is not a 'single plant' (so for plants at poly vertices, plants along poly edges, plants in rectangular array, or plants in triangular array) the data tag tool selects from the 'object selection box' (for lack of the proper term) and these often overlap.

Which means that you cant easily select the plant object you want as the data tag tool doesn't allow for a select coincident objects mode.


Granted, the tool works a bit better if you are using 'toward data tag mode' vs toward object mode'

But the user should be able to specify which object is correct.


In my other post it was brought up that this is also a problem for architects selecting objects that are coincident or even just close.
