    How Can I Prevent Selection of Hidden Lines In HLR and Shaded Views?

    Jeff Fine

      This is very frustrating, and has been an issue for several releases now.

      I have the button unchecked in Options / System Options / Selection / Selection of Hidden Edges / Allow selection in HLR and Shaded modes, yet it still selects every hidden edge in a model.  Is there any additional setting that needs to be implemented for this to actually work?  In many years of using SolidWorks, I've never wanted to select a hidden edge in HLR or Shaded modes, so I would love to find a solution to this.
