If you had an inspector open on the selected control and toggled cantSelect and boom it disappeared because the selected object wasn’t selected would you report that as a bug? That’s why it’s not on the inspector. Mind you it might be feasible to switch the inspector to locked on object mode at that point...

Actually it is but the toolTip is wrong! I’m about to submit a patch for that.

Hmm… it does appear it does allow it… perhaps the select command works regardless of cantSelect? It does not appear to crash for me though.
