Greetings, folks!

cmd-a used to select only those objects that were visible, unlocked, and only on visible layers, i.e., if I can see it on my screen after a zoom-to-fit and it’s not locked, it gets selected and nothing else gets selected.

I just lost hours because form•Z was changing layers of objects that were not visible, on layers that were not visible! Almost all, but not quite all! (for no discernible reason), of my invisible layers and invisible objects get highlighted in my Layers and Objects palettes when I invoke the Edit/Select All menu item! I have gone through the online manuals to see how to restore this behavior with no luck.

There also seems to be no way to reset the Tool Options/Pick/Attributes, e.g., any material selected cannot be changed to include all materials.

Thoughts on how to select only those objects that are visible on screen and unlocked?
