Currently, Easel allows us to
Select by cut type
and, if you can see what you are doing, you can visually/manually select objects by clicking on them.
we need the ability to at least "tab through" all objects, until we find the one we want. Better yet would be a list of selectable objects, listed in Z-order (so you'd also know where each object is in the front-to-back stack of objects.)
If there are similar or identical objects stacked together, it is very difficult to select the one you want - and to know that you have the correct object selected.
