    with the number of tools like rigging fighting for selection with geometry and even transform manipulators what's badly needed is this

    I agree that scene view selection needs an overhaul. Not sure what the best solution would be, but in the meantime my team is using a custom selection utility that displays a list of all objects under the context click mouse.

    Does unity expose something to override selection?
    in the meantime I ended up reverting back to Maya

    Yoooo, that's amazing.

    We've always had a utility where you hold down ctrl and then use the scroll wheel to scroll through the objects under the mouse cursor. I prefer the dropdown menu approach.
