My frame contains an element filling the entire frame area (in the back).

Every time I span a selection, that element is part of it, and I have to Shift+click to unselect it.

Can I make it unselectable or inactive somehow?

    Hi. Welcome to GDSE. I'm not a figma user, but maybe look to see if there is a way to lock the layer. Most vector image editors have a lock you can apply to layers/objects.

You can use Ctrl+L or Cmd+L keys to lock and unlock an object in Figma.
