Back in LDT you used to be able to mouse over point descriptions of draged state points to get Osnap to select the node. Civil 3D has apparently done away with this, why who knows but its very very hard to know what point your selecting if say you have a bunch of points on top of eachother. Can this be enabled anywhere?
The very mundain work around is to use 'PO to select the point entity, but it does not show the little osnap indicator on the point marker when you use 'PO.
How can I get my old Osnap node selection back?
Snapping to a C3D Point using the Node osnap should work. If explode and destroy the C3D point you now have Autocad blocks representing your point so you will need to use the Insert Osnap.
This is a thread about this topic that was started on Monday. It lists some options. But not the exact method you want. Although if there is enough interest it may appear again some time in the future. The only option you'd have to get it back quickly would be to find a 3rd party that provided it or pay a 3rd party developer to do it.
