Hi all,

I have a diagram where I have 2 kinds of parts :
- a parent that is playing the role of a container
- children parts that are contained in each parent part.

When clicking on a child I want the parent to be selected. The problem
appears that the children are covering all the surface for the parent on
the diagram, so the parent is not directly hit. If I have an empty
container or a not completely filled parent I can select it and have it
surrounded by the selection handles.

I want to be able to select the parent in all cases : hitting it
directly if it is empty or if there is spaces between child, or hitting
any child belonging to the parent and so have the parent selected.

Thank you all
