I find that IReport often doesn't select the correct element when there are many elements nearby.
Eg. Create a textbox (y=0 height=8) and place two lines one at y=0 and one at y=8. (same width as textbox)
It is almost impossible to select the middle textbox!
Even when zoomed in to 800% I cannot select the textbox even though the textbox is now easily 50 pixels high at least and there should be no ambiguity as to which element I want to select when clicking at its center.
It looks as though the element selection coordinates are not getting translated properly when the report is zoomed in and instead of refining where the new selection boundaries should be located it seems as though it just uses the same distance divided by the zoom level to evaluate against the previous selection model.
Could this be fixed, it gets very frustrating in complex reports with many many small textboxes with borders surrounding them etc.
