[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.

    I can't believe that this is still happening in 5.3.4. It is not fixed, our level design is completely blocked by this issue, and none of the solutions online (including the one above) solve anything.

    OXEREN, You Saved me. Disabling the Reflection in Edit Mode worked :)

    Had the same issue after updating to 5.3.4, as people are saying it was caused by water reflections. The solution that does not include changing water type is to remove [ExecuteInEditMode] line from the water script, though there will be no reflections in the scene view.

    Yep I'm with Pherim, the wateProDayTime caused the issue for me. Changed the Water Mode setting to Simple and the problem went away... Unit 5.3.4

    Even more specific, it appears to be the reflection that causes it. Changing Water mode to simple works as well.

    Ok, I had just experienced the same issue for the first time, after updating to 5.3.4. and after all the solutions I found didn't work for me I began deleting objects from the affected scene one by one and found that it worked again after I deleted the water plane. It was the WaterProDaytime prefab from the standard assets. Specifically, the water script component causes the issue. Disabling it makes objects clickable again.
