Picks or unpicks one or more objects.
If this option is ON (indicated by a check mark), objects in inactive or reference layers are not picked when they are grouped below the selected object(s) in the DAG hierarchy.
If any descendants of a node are on an unpickable layer, the system de-selects the original node(s) and selects all the pickable nodes on the level below. It continues the process until all pickable descendants of all selected nodes are found.
By default, Pick according to layers is OFF, and Pick > Object ignores layer state attributes. This example shows how results can differ depending on this option.
