Another great addition to 2011 is the Selection Cycling (SC) toggle found on the Status Bar (drafting setting buttons). If you have objects that are overlapping and you want to select one of them, your only option was to hold SHIFT and hit the spacebar while hovering over the stacked objects. You can still do this method but there is this (SC) toggle that will come in handy.
With SC turned on:
- Hover over the overlapped objects and you will see a blue icon that appears next to your cursor.
- Click on the overlapped objects and a “Selection” box appears that shows the color of the objects and what the object is made of (line, circle, polyline)…
- You can either click the desired object from this list or use the up & down arrows to highlight the object, then hit enter to select it.
Note: when you are zoomed out and hovering over objects, the SC icon appears, so I wouldn’t suggest that this be toggled on all of the time.

Where is the SC toggle? Is it an icon? Is it on a menu?
Good point. I have updated the post to show the toggle.
