Civil 3D Selection Issues Over Images

This is a setting that I always change when I set up my Civil 3D.

Have you ever had an image in your drawing and if you have linework crossing or on top of the image and then you go to select an object that is on top, you can’t? or you have to hold shift in order to select it? It is so annoying.

Well, there is a setting for this issue. But it is a MAP 3D setting.

Here’s how:

  • Enter MAPIOPTIONS (don’t forget the I in the middle of the command – MAP I OPTIONS) Map Image Options.
  • Click on the “General” tab.
  • Uncheck the box next to “Shift+Left Click Image Select”.

This blog serves as a knowledge base for myself (and anyone else) so that I can reference tips & tricks that I have learned and also refer others to it as well. I hope that this blog helps you learn at least one tip to make your drafting/design experience better.
