Object selection issues

I think something is wrong with selecting objects on map screen. Too many objects around the clicked area are listed in "selected items" list. I don't know which one to select because sometimes I have same object names as labels. My suggestion is: 1. First, in clicked area, look for the objects of the top layer in layer order. 3.If there is only one object, directly open the form. 4. If there is more than one then list the objects in "selected items" list. 5. If there is no objects from top layer then look for the objects of next layer.

Usually users move the point layers to the top of of layer order, then the polygon layers which has small polygons, then the layers with bigger polygons.

Hello,

thanks for suggestion. I'm checking it to "idea", because it's not a real problem.

Anyway I absolutely agree that it may be a problem in case, on map is more items.

So implemented. But I personally do not agree, that Locus automatically select item in first, top layer. Instead I keep current system, just items are now sorted by order of layers and also name of layer (where geometry belong) is in description of item in list.

Ok, I think current selection method is fine, only there are two minor difficulties. 1. Even if I tab on a place which is exactly inside only one polygon feature I get a selected items list which includes more than one item from same layer and also from other layers. Especially when the tabbed area is away from the centre of the map.

2. imagine that I have the following layers in my project.

districts borders (polygon),

block of buildings (polygon)

Buildings (polygon),

A point layer on buildings (point).

in this case, when I tab on a point each time I will see objects list from all these layers. But in my suggestion, if I want to select an object from districts layer, simply I will tab on a place where there is no point, no building or blocks of building.

Anyway, it works fine now, "name of the layer" and "sorting by layer order" will make it better.

Thanks a lot for your great works.

Understand ...

I've anyway improved it a little bit, hope it will be better.

I still get a list of neighbouring features (within one layer) , even if I zoom in and select precisely one polygon. Had the same problem before in locus map.

I get my line features in selection list which are really far away from the tabbed area.

Sorry for this issue. Seems like very old bug also in Locus Map that appear on light now, with big resolutions on display. Should be fixed in latest version.
