Just a check b4 I report a bug 2015.2 :

Users should NEVER be able to select Hidden geometry, right???

(Lassoing Hidden EDGES-- very surprising, then can't deSelect with '/' key, but can with blank area double-click.)

Anybody else having issues with lasso-selection of hidden Edges?

'Cuz that's what prompted this, but that model seemed to be pranged in a couple other ways, and eventually stopped loading (!!!).

It's the same in 2015.3 - just tried.
Go ahead and report.

I couldn't get it to repeat, so I'm not going to report until I can. If someone else has a repeatable case with sample files, be my guest.

It's a pretty big deal, so the sooner the devs have a good sample, the better.

I've done a little more research.

It looks to me that polys whose edges are hidden and adjoin other polys whose edges are also hidden, are not selected by the lasoo.

Polys whose edges are hidden and adjoin other polys whose edges are not hidden, are selected by lasoo.

This may or may not be a bug or simply an inconvenience. I'll do some more testing.

The effect I was seeing, unrepeatably, was that the lasso was REVEALING hidden Edges on the far side of the object, that is, Edges belonging to polys that had their back faces towards the vuport.

It's possible that they were connected around the edge of object , but my impression is they were not.
