    Select tool preferences are limited to only two basic options - select by object or select by oath only. I suggest a third.

    It would make life so much easier if there was option in preferences that would allow users to choose “select ignores raster effects". This would enable the selection of an object fill without being concerned with overlapping shadows, transparent images, text effects or scans containing clear elements or objects white areas of objects with multiply effect applied.

    When working with complex detailed illustrations contains multiple overlapping shapes the ‘select by path option’ tends life harder still – like threading spaghetti with chop sticks.

    Other workarounds include forever locking / unlocking objects, isolating objects or creating more layers. However, when you start counting in excess of 40+ layers.. you just end up fighting layers too.

    Please Adobe... end this needless suffering of fighting to select object fills bellow shadows and raster effects.

    Select tool preferences are limited to only two basic options.

    Option 1: Select tool's default option selects object's shadows, text leading and transparent raster images instead of just the object shape. This is hugely aggravating when working on highly detailed illustrations utilising multiple overlapping objects and layers with shadows or raster items.

    Options 2: is to "select by path only". When working with highly complex and detailed illustrations, this is actually a far more fiddly and aggravating option. Especially. when trying to click on individual paths where there's many paths overlapping.

    It would make life so much easier if there was a third option in preferences allowing "select ignores raster effects". This would allow the user to select an object fill without being concerned with overlapping shadows, transparent images effects (e.g.. multiply) or text leading effects.

    Please Adobe... I'm so tired of fighting with shadows an raster effect selections every day.

    You had me at hello!

    Would love that!

    Tired of forever fighting over object selection in detailed files. Gets to a point where too many layers just works against you. Forever of/on process. Advanced selection preferences would make such a difference to speed of work.

    Agreed 100%.

    Often I use .psd files embedded for tracing and adding textures. This also eliminate the same problem encountered with transparencies and scans. Excellent suggestion!

    Only other option is set preferences to "select by path only". Again on detailed illustrations, this is a much more fiddler and annoying option. Especially. when trying to click on individual paths where there's many paths overlapping.

    It would make life so much easier if there was also preference option for "select ignores shadows".

    Fingers crossed!
