Seletion of geometry behind geometry in 2.8

Hi, it seems that in 2.8 in wireframe mode, even with xray turned on, it’s impossible to select elements that are behind other geometry. Wondering if I am doing something wrong, or if there is a new way in 2.8 to select geometry a la 2.79 in wireframe mode that may be well behind other layers of geometry in the current view?

For example, i am trying to select a face that is behind many other faces and edit mode, but i can’t select the face easily even though i am selection quite close to the ot in the middle of the face.

You need to click in the facedots to select faces in wireframe.
