Some parts do not have highlighting in the editor with particular settings
No highlighting of "EAS-4 Strut Connector" in VAB anymore when hovering mousepointer on initial placement location.
I understand that something got fixed about the "EAS-4 Strut Connector", seems highlighting got broken in the process.

Another issue about "EAS-4 Strut Connector".
Before update, i was able to point the second connection in opposite view of part i wanted to connect to and it connected at the first encounter of material, which helped much in symetric orientation in VAB (i.e. 1st at center of rocket, second at outer booster). Now it doesn't place at click and you have to look directly to the place where you want to place the second end of connector.
If my writing is unclear, i might add some visual explanation.

Hi AlffromKerbal, can you please add pictures to help explain your second point, and please retest the strut highlight with a new settings.cfg (rename the old one or reset settings in the settings screen).
The struts highlight for me, pic attached.

I renamed .cfg, which didn't help. I made a fresh install and it worked, so i tried to narrow it down.
The cause is, i need both activated, Highlight FX and Anti-Aliasing there is no highlighted strut when one of them is deactivated (other parts are).
My second point seems resolved due to fresh install i think.

I just realized, that this is not restricted to strut connector. I checked every single stock part and found some more:
PPD-12 Cupola Module, MK1 & MK2 Lander Can, MK1 & MK2-1 Command Pod, PDD10 Hitchhiker Storage Container, Mobile Processing Lab MPL-LG-2.
Only edges are highlighted, this also happens to a docked asteroid.
I think, but cannot verify it anymore, that #13122 might have had the same issue before.

- File hilight.craft hilight.craft added
- Subject changed from "EAS-4 Strut Connector" doesn't have highlighting anymore since 18.104.22.1682 to Some parts do not have highlighting in the editor with particular settings
- Severity changed from Unworthy to Very Low
- Platform Windows added
Confirmed the second issue on windows in 1.3.0. (The first issue -- struts -- work correctly now.)
In Minisettings, turn off Highlight FX or Antialiasing.
Go into the VAB, load the attached "hilight" craft.
Hover the mouse over the MK3 cockpit.
Note: exactly the same parts have the highlighting problem as have the "ghosting" problem. So this is likely exactly the same issue.
