What you're really after is a modeless dialog box. This has been a request for almost a decade to make all of the dialogs in C3D modeless, but Autodesk hasn't really done that. They spent some time about 8 years ago or so making some dialogs modeless, but then just stopped.

Thank you for your idea. We are doing our best to move to modeless dialog boxes as we work on related functionality (corridor targeting and transitions are recent examples).

A workaround to this request would be to click Select Region From Drawing, pan to the location you wish, then press Escape.

I am using Project Explorer UI to make it possible. Also, I want to suggest utilizing Civil 3d's Project Explorer feature to manage/edit/view all the design components in a single hub. (Introduced from the version of 2021 Civil 3D & requires a separate download and installation from your Autodesk account)

Some Short keys while working in Project Explorer:

Ctrl: Will show the actual location of the selected element

Z: Zoom in to the location of an element

S: Can select the object in the drawing area

A: Can access the properties of elements to modify changes.
