Selecting an object in room editor that's overlapped by another

Hi guys,

In 1.4 I've got a 32x32 square object that's transparent, under that I've got a smaller object.. How do I select the smaller object because it always selects the object ontop ?

go in the settings tab, open the instance list, and move the bottom instance to the end of the list.

instances that appear later in the list, have priority to get selected in the room editor.

Does that also change what gets created first when the game is run ? or is it exclusive to the room editor ?
Would've been nice to have a right click - send to back like in VS.

it does change, they're created from top to bottom.

generally, if you need to use other instances' data initialized in create events, you should use a room start event to make sure creation order doesn't break things.
