Thanks for the quick response. That is a good idea and something I tried but the problem comes into play again if I want to select a second ball before I issue my move command.
Instead of just selecting the ball as well, it also selects the ground object beneath the ball.
I can make things easier by using right click for movement and left click for selecing but I was just wondering if it was possible to only click on the top object.
(Just wanting to keep it simple and also keep the door open for a touch version in the future.) The only work around I can think of is to have a seperate move button pop up when I select a ball but that kind of makes things clunky.
Ahh I can select only the ball by inverting a "cursor is over ball" condition in my moving command, problem solved.
Now to find a way to deselect a selected ball by clicking on it again before it moves. Variables should do the job.
