Silo selection, I simply don't get it

Hi guys, I hope there are somebody who can help me.

I really love Silo but this problem is too annoying.

I leave you a few screenshots that explane a problem very well.

Silo has a couple of selection modes (marquee and draw selection) [alt a, alt s repectively], not really sure what you are doing to get these strange results - in the options you can turn on backface culling but this dosen't really look like the problem you are having either.

Need a bit more information

I suggest you check your 3D cards OpenGL settings. If Antialiasing is on, set it to application controlled.

heh, Cinnsealach, you simply are mr. silo , If ever jam and feed need a mascot, you da man.

I've turn on "AA by application" as Cinnsealach has suggested, and the problem is gone!

Thank you all guys, now for me Silo has became the best 3d modeling app.

p.s.: btw, can anybody tell me how can I select non visible faces? I mean, imagine this situation: you create a sphere and would like to delete half of that sphere; you are going to ortho view and by "area selection" grab half of sphere. In my situation it grabs only front faces (I've tried to turn on/off Backface Culling in Display Option).

simply use the middle mouse button instead of the left one for selecting (select thru).
