[SceneView]Can't select objects in scene view without dragging around it

Scene/Game View


To reproduce:
1) Open attached project and the scene inside of it
2) Try selecting any object in scene view by clicking on it. Notice that such selecting doesn't work
3) Change project to gamma mode (edit -> project settings -> player -> Rendering -> Color Space
4) Resize scene view slightly to get proper repaint
5) Try picking. Should work now.

    It's 2019 and I'm experiencing this issue. Is anything planned to be done about it?

    I have the same problem in 2019.1.9f1. I think it is a bug.

    I am not sure why this fixed the problem but I changed the layer my objects were on back to default and I was once again able to select them in the scene view. Hope this helps

    Still happens in 2017.4.11f1.
    Can't click on a single cube in the scene to select it even in a complete empty project with no asset imported...

    Still happens in 5.6.0f1. The issue is anytime OnWillRenderObject() is used on a water reflection / mirror script. If the script is disabled in the editor (turning water reflection to simple / deactivating the water reflection script or object / preventing this call from running in the editor) then the view-port behaves as normal.

    Quite frustrating, as otherwise we could have a WYSIWYG in the editor with full reflection.

    hi i use version 5.503f and the problem still continue.I found two ways for it.
    First way
    Deactived scripts that has reflection code.Don't forget reactived before built the game.
    second way
    Type any object name search line in hiearcy panel.Now you can select any object even object has reflection sciript.
    Sorrry my english.

    Similar to what someone had put before about selecting objects and deleting then undoing all i do is in the hierarchy: click an object, ctrl + a (or cmd + a), delete then ctrl + z. Seems to work fine then. Hope this helps someone :)
