Element Selection in 3D Window / AC25


HI everyone,

Just wondering if there is a new feature / toggle for selecting elements in the 3D window in Archicad 25.

Whenever I go to select elements in the 3D window, the selection tool highlights/chooses a non-visible element BEHIND the element that I am trying to select. Definitely useful but not always. I don't recall this in earlier versions - is there a way of turning this on/off?

Doesn’t pressing the tab key cycle through the potential selections so that you can select the correct (highlighted) one?

Or activate the tool for the element type you want to select, then SHIFT select that element.

Again TAB if there happens to be multiple overlapping elements.
