I’m working on a board (VESC derivative) where the front side is pretty much completely covered with components. The backside will have parts that need careful placement between all the existing vias. A problem I’m experiencing is that KiCAD seems to always prioritize selecting the top parts, even when having the back copper layer as active. The screenshot shows this (I tried to select the QFP, but got the underlying FET):
It seems this only goes away when completely hiding the front side parts and copper, making placing parts hard and adding vias near impossible. Is there some better way of working with this kind of PCB?
