    Considering that there is a week left before the deadline; Oh boy - they sure pick their moments.

    Selecting objects in the 3D view is broken after my SDK updated. I can only select objects at certain angles and sometimes it ends up selecting objects behind what I am trying to select.

    For example, I am trying to select the wall in the following image highlighted by a red cross.

    I select it but...what is this?

    It's selected a displacement behind the object I wanted to select.

    Here's an overview.

    :facepalm:

    Anybody else had the same problem since the update?

    EDIT: It seems that 'Reverse Selection Order' had been ticked under Options for some reason. I've never touched the option. >_>

    Hm, interesting. I'll make sure to tick that off as well if it's something from the update or whatever.

    But why would anyone even want a reversed selection order? o_O

    can you still select it in the 2d view?

    The 2D view is all but useless for selection, with the exception of box select.

    This mean your issue is resolved and that you were making false allegations of our beloved valve??

    if so you should state it clearer so people dont come to the thread and rage more :p

    Yeah, while using Hammer on my laptop, I had "Reverse Selection Order" on by default for some reason. Valve has a way of having options turn on themselves.

    There was no SDK update lately, the original poster fixed his problem by going in Hammer's settings and turning off reverse selection. Probably got toggled on by accidentally pressing the shortcut key.

    Component between keyboard and chair has detected that a problem exists: "Vista".

    I find it useful for cutting and selecting brushes inside brushes.
