Selecting line before construction line

Is there a way to set Onshape to select a regular line before it selects a construction line that is coincident with the regular line?

    @ eric_20 , Do you mean selection filter to select only solid lines? At present Onshape don't have that option.

    There is no selection filter. But you can use "Select other" from the context menu.

    From the Help:
    "Use Select other to select entities (sketch curves, part faces, etc) that you might not be able to see in the graphics area because they are obscured by other entities."

    similar problem and prior answers do not seem to apply.  So far, only a sketch.  Solid line arcs are on their dashed construction circles.  I need to make an array of the arc segments, but when clicking always and only get the whole circle.  Only want the arc segment.  What to do?
