Forget the list - I did once I figured out that I was too stupid to use it.
Instead, right-click and "select other" - then simply select the edge you
want with the left mouse button. The new select other took some getting used
to, but man, I really like it now. No more escaping because my cursor wasn't
in the "right" place.

Thanks, I see part of my problem now. I was trying to pick an imported
object. Perhaps I'll get used to it.
BTW, there seems to be a few issues with picking. After using the
measure tool in an assembly it would only select entire bodies. I
turned the measure tool on/off again and then I could be entities.
Another similar problem occurred when placing dimensions in a sketch.
The dimension and leaders did not display after the second click, but
did display properly after third click.

I agree with Richard, it's pretty cool! When you RMB on a face
and do the 'Select Other', the face you clicked on dissapears so
that you can truly see what's behind it. You then pick the face
But maybe I'm missing something. It seems that a lot of the time, I do that
and I get the face that I first clicked on, rather than the one below it.
If I want the one below, I have to select it out of the box. If I can now
see it, why can't I click on it?
That sounds like something I submitted as a bug late in beta. It was a
problem with particular faces of a model. I didn't find a pattern to which
face s would have the problem, but it was persistent once there.
I agree, it's not quite right, yet.
Sometimes when selecting, and selecting another time, that Z sub level
(I'll call it?), where the selection box is no longer showing?
It's not logical to me, or my want/need is to keep the list up and if it
stepping down another Z level after another selection, maybe have a
another window pop up and then maybe a back space for previois
Or, maybe a graphical target zone which helps the user understand what
elements fall with in the select other area?
For a first release, it's ok but it needs work.
I actually really wanted to do the beta on this feature but, I lost the
information they sent me (because I picked up the message on my server
and forgot to save it) and again I was busy during that time.
This feature is important, imho, and hopefully it gets some more
options, testing and qa applied to it?
