I think this is the type of occasion where this happens the most often where there are base splines that have been used to create shapes that are hanging around and then this situation occurs halfway through selecting 101 splines and then it becomes annoying!

Cheers

Hi Michael,

I come across this situation from time to time also, I think I've metioned it in the past.
Re: pop up, instead of having an 'in your face' pop up always appearing when you mouse over a stack of entities, could you have a small symbol appear next to the cursor to indicate that there is more than on entity and then either right or left mouse button, hold and popup will appear, in this way you call for the popup when you want.

Meanwhile, when I do come across this situation we are talking about, I'll drop you a post.

Cheers
~Danny~

Yup, that's what tends to happen. It's not a bad idea to get in the habit of hiding or deleting your base curves after you have used them to create something.

They are normally selected right then so you can hit Hide or Delete right then to get them out of your way in advance...

That may actually be too subtle though - one reason why I want to add this in the future is for more beginning users who get stuck because they don't know that they are selecting a curve object rather than an edge.

Those beginning users probably won't know what a small symbol means, that's why it could use a small popup with text labels to solve this particular workflow problem for beginners.

That would be great. Usually though there is a solution to such things which is to hide the things that are getting your your way and interfering from being able to target the thing you want.
