How can I select a line which is hidden under an other line?

Best regards,

    Pressing "~" to cycle through the select other is the best way I know.

    Every once and a while I have to select both lines, with an inclusive box selection, then deselect the one on top. This can be useful for drawing studios sometimes too. Or you can exclusive box selection around the smaller line if that is the one you are after.
