For instance, when I create a note with a link to a part feature and point to the face of a part in the drawing, it picks the edge of a part hiding behind it.
Go to "Tools>Options>System Options>Drawings" at that point uncheck the box for "select hidden entities"
Uncheck these options
Thanks for adding that, I should have included those checkboxes as well I was just thinking purely from drawing standpoint and not from model.
No. I think there must be something wrong with my installation. Hidden edges still get selected.
Did you checked off settings in both locations?
I have unchecked all 3 of those boxes.
It looks like there is not a problem when initially placing the note, but the problem comes after the note is there and you want to move where the leader is attached.
I do not remember this problem in SW 2014.
Could you upload a file and a video showing the issue?
ok this SW screen cap thing is brutal.
have to convert to gif too?
(How does everyone do screen caps?)
I have been using this tiny little tool CamStudio - Free Screen Recording Software
Jing at Jing (Windows) Download Thank You is also easy to use.
Works fine for me, just checked in SW2015.
Have you tried the Selection Filter?
