In v8i I'm able to select these objects or snap to points along the yellow line THROUGH the glass box.
In CE it seems I'm not able to do so. What am I doing wrong?
PS. I have Disable Drag Operations checked in both v8i and CE, but I don't think this is related to the problem.
What setting have you got under;
File > Settings > User > Preferences > Input > Locate Interiors
In v8i the default was Never, and in connect it seems to be Visible
Thanks - I've now tried all options; Never/ Visible/ Always.
Never; will not select anything inside the glass box (no matter how far in I zoom)
Visible; First attempt at a tentative snap always shoots to a keypoint on the edge of the glass box, second attempt will select the object I want.
Always; same as Visible.
v8i quickly and accurately selects the geometry I want - something must be wrong with my CE settings, or is this standard behavior in CE. I really hope not.
By the way - it something wrong with the Communities site? Posts take several minutes to load.
Related to this - in v8i I can snap to the point where I know there is a vertex in the geometry (even though it is obscured).
In CONNECT, I'm not able to do this - have to rotate the object and snap on that vertex only when visible.
