selection order
Hello KC community, 

I've just upgrade from 2020sp2 to 2022sp1.1 and noticed that when I use generic edit for a solid, KC starts to pick edges, then faces and finally the solid. In 2020sp2 KC picks the solid first. How can I get the same behavior ?

I have pre selection disabled (in both versions).

Thanks!

Apparently Kubotek thought this behavior would "improve" it.  I agree, it sucks.  Kubotek, please change it back the way it was!

I confirm the behaviour.  While I investigate, hold the SHIFT key while selecting to access the parent entity when functions accept multiple entity types

RE:selection order
This seems to only happen with GENERIC EDIT on solids, sheet bodies & faces.  Are you aware of any other functions besides GENERIC EDIT

RE:selection order
The problem is that while holding SHIFT forces it to select a solid, you can't then use the selection toggle (spacebar) to rotate between solids.  If you're trying to select a solid that's behind other solids, it's a real PITA.

It also does this during verify entity.
