Selection Box Display Issue

Encountering a bug with selection boxes not displaying beyond a very small distance. As you can see in the gif below, the two brick’s outlines are acting separately when I have both selected and not displaying past a few studs away.
Selection Boxes

This makes it very hard to make selections containing many separate objects. Hover Over effect still properly shows, this has only affected selections. Rejoining does not fix, and I have confirmed it with other developers as well.


I’ve been encountering this issue as well. Very frustrating to deal with.

I can confirm this issue happens to me as well, although it’s a bit longer of a distance than yours.

I currently use selection boxes for letting players who use our games weapon to give them another visualization of them hitting there enemy by highlighting that character part that was hit with it. With this issue occurring right now you can’t even see the box from like 30 studs away regardless of ones graphics level.


I too can confirm this happening. My pc is a Windows 10, with the latest version of Studio.

Frustrating beyond belief when working on larger builds. Can’t really tell what is selected.

This issues’ an absolute problem for distance selection on large-scale models. Hopefully, they fix it soon.

Thanks for the report! We’ve filed a ticket to our internal database and we’ll follow up when we have an update for you.


This should now be fixed once you restart Studio. The root cause was changes to shaders that were required for the UIStroke beta, which is now disabled.
