Selecting a visual beneath another - a lower level visual

Version: 2.46.4732.581 64-bit (May 2017)

 

Does anyone know if there is a way of selecting a visual which is entirely overlapped by another visual over the top of it?

 

I'm using a work-around to get a traffic light effect by placing a Tree Map underneath a KPI to give the appearance that the background colour is changing according to data. However when I want to edit the Tree Map below I need to move the KPI out of the way first. But before I move it I'm recording its x and y postions so I get it back in the same place. It's a bit tedious.

@KarlinOz,

 

Select KPI visual>Send backward. Then unselect KPI visual, move to Tree map visual, you can select this visual.
