Same Layer / same position / same length = no Same Layer / same position / different length = mostly yes. Use the "select rectangular area" tool (left to right) to catch the shorter line and with a left mouse click you can catch the longer line.

Hi Clive, I may be missing something here, but... Let's say I have an 8" line on top of a 6" line--same layer, color, etc. Thankfully, QCAD does a nice job of letting me know there is more than one line there, but pointing and clicking anywhere on the lines selects the longer one. I understand I can use the rectangular selector to grab only the smaller line. But what if I have small, intricate entities somewhere on my 6" line? My selection rectangle must be very, very skinny in order to select only the line I want. Know what I mean?
