this is a downgrade compared to the way 2.7 can select so accurately objects, it need to be fixed, will be really anoying having to hold alt every time you need to slect a object, SPECIALLY IN COMPLEX SCENES WHERE WE TEND TO NOT RENAME EVERY OBJECT.
Agreed. I think any click on a surface that has alpha=0 should be ignored. This should go for clicking on objects or interface items. The N and T panel are great when they’re transparent. You can see more of your scene, but you can’t click in these transparent areas to select an object under it or navigate the view from there. I think it will confuse new users and be a continuing annoyance for older users.
I thought I’d point out, in case it wasn’t clear, that the selection now works like you’re in a solid shaded mode of 2.79 all the time - whether you’re in wireframe mode or not. Ignoring 100% transparent faces (not edges) would essentially work like wireframe mode in 2.79.
I’m not sure why CTRL+Click works, but it only seems to work in this one situation. If you put another sphere inside of the one that’s there now, CTRL+Click stops working. We basically need ONLY edges to be clickable when xray (alpha) is set to 0. This will give us the easy selection capability we had in 2.79 wireframe mode. It will also be intuitive for people moving from other software, since this is how all of the other 3d packages work (at least the ones I’ve used).
maybe its final decision to remove wireframe mode in blender 2.8.
i hope blender foundation consider to bring back wireframe mode like blender 2.7.
i am very sad blender 2.8 lose ability to easy select.
in max it easy to switch use F3 wireframe and F4 edged faces.
I wonder why they chose not to use the good old and useful wireframe display? What do they have against it?
it was so simple and immediate … press Z and voila wireframe view, press Z again solid view
I do not like this evolution that tends to cut decades-old uses.
