I have a “sandwich” of objects in a vector layer in Krita, one over the other. I am not able to select the desired object with the “Select Shapes Tool”

  • neither by clicking on it,
  • nor by dragging a rectangle over it
    • neither from left to right (the blue rectangle),
    • nor from right to left (the green rectangle).

The selection always contains more than 1 object.

Is there a way to select the desired object from such a sandwich?

(I didn't find any word about it in the Krita's manual.)

To select one object from the overlapped set, just

  • hold down the Ctrl key, and
  • repeatedly click on the “sandwich” of them.

Every click will select the next object beneath the cursor, cycling between all of them.
