Alan Troth (Al) added a comment to T67966: UV editor doesn't select exact face.

I think this may be the way it was designed to work. When there's a potential for overlapping faces there needs to be a way to select a face that is 'under' another face, this design allows that.

Alan Troth (Al) added a comment to T73592: Proportional Editing Bug Blender 2.81a.

Your proportional edit size has somehow got very big. Maybe once the circle was lost off screen it just got more and more lost.


Bring the value down to about 1.0 and see if you can see the circle.

Darkening the background may work for shallow hierarchies but for deeper hierarchies the background colour will get to a point where it can’t get any darker, at that point the node hierarchy will look as flat as it does now.

Alan Troth (Al) added a comment to T61777: Proportional editing does not influence all objects in edit mode.

At the moment, while proportional editing, selected vertices will only 'pull' unselected vertices from the same mesh. D3993 or D5163 allows selected vertices from one mesh to pull vertices from other meshes. On their own these patches don't fix this task.

A few UV Editor results. As a reminder, 'kdTree' is this diff of set_prop_dist(...), 'N2' is the current single object set_prop_dist(...) and 'new N2' is diff at D5163 of set_prop_dist(...).
