Difficulty selecting features in ArcScene

Last Published: April 25, 2020


In some cases, clicking one feature and another one gets selected. In other cases, certain features that are rendered on or near surfaces cannot be selected, unless the surface layer is turned off.


This is a known issue.

Solution or Workaround

Change the perspective and try selecting again. If a surface is involved, try turning it off.
