When working with a busy model it is often difficult to select the right object/element. Tabbing through the available selection candidates sometimes doesn't work and it takes a bit of zooming in and out to finally get at the right thing.

Other times we have some objects whose shape and position has been set and locked and they won't change. Selecting those elements doesn't make sense most of the time.

It would be really helpful if there was a way to disable selection of locked items. This of course would be a toggle option of the selection process.
i think this would be very useful. This happens to me a lot with section markers and overhead slabs. If im working on a specific floor i want to select that floor slab first, not the one above. I dont want to be turning on and off stuff just so i dont selected or worse, creating new layer combos just for this. Maybe a selection hierarchy list could be useful

A pop-out list of selectable elements might be a nice idea.
But for now you can cycle through them with the TAB key.
The element you are about to select will pre-highlight with its info in the pop-out info box.
