I'm having great fun familiari sing myself with Gearotic2 .   

On the 3-axis workbench I've found that when items are closely spaced or overlappi ng it becomes impossibl e to select some of the objects.

For example, I placed a couple of small pinions in the space inside a larger planetary gear (to make efficient use of that material) but then found that even if I clicked directly on a pinion, only the larger planetary was selected.  There seems no way to select the pinions without first moving the planetary away so there is little or no overlap.  Is there something I'm missing?

I often "nest" items that I'm machining to save material but this inability to select any overlappi ng object makes this tricky.  Not sure I'd say it was a bug but it would be nice if there was someway to refine the selection process.

   I will check into this one and see if I can make it easier to select withing selection areas.
Gearotic has been locked down except for serious bugs as its complexit y hit a point where
changes put in too many bugs. But this is one I will investiga te to see what I can do.
