Select Other - drop down needs moving out of the way please

most of the time the little "Select Other" visual feedback is being blocked by the nice (but often very annoying) little selection box.


lots of people complain and yet we still have it doing the same thing, getting in the way.


can you fix this please? ie move it away a bit, or if user moves it away from geometry attempting to be chosen, then make it stick to where the user manually positions it...

Please implement this idea soon!  This is unacceptable as is and VERY FRUSTRATING.  I don't know how this made it into Inventor without being tested but apparently it wasn't because if it were, this BUG would have been fixed before the selection tool update.
