hi mike,

> Is there an easier way to select polygons within a stack of shapes on the same layer?  If I have two overlaying shapes with similar extents, I can only click on the top shape.  Other graphics packages will cycle through the overlayed shapes with each mouse click.  Is there an environment setting in Scribus that I need to modify to enable this capability, or can I select a polygon by its name somewhere?  I currently need to resort to temporarily moving a shape to a different layer (because Scribus will not allow selection of shapes that aren't on the "active" layer, regardless of whether the layer is locked or not), select the desired shape, make my edits, then restore the "higher" shape(s) back to their original layer.  There must be an easier way....
