how do I avoid selecting nodes below (concealed by) group node?

0 votes
To reproduce:
  • create a group node
  • create a standard node
  • cover the standard node with the group node (standard node not visible)
  • drag the marquee over the empty space above the standard node and it is selected

I want to only select nodes that are visible. Any settings I've missed?

Unfortunately, there is no setting that forces marquee selection to ignore nodes that are completely covered by other nodes.
