Newbie: When selecting a particular layer, the whole group gets selected

I’m a newbie, though I have worked on a quite a lot of Figma templates already. With this one though, I am facing a problem where the upon selecting an object, the entire group is getting selected.

Here’s how it looks.

It’s hard to tell exactly what’s going on in the screenshot, but to select elements within a group or nested frame you can hold down ctrl/command and click through. You can also right click to get the context menu which will let you select the nested layer.

Hope this is helpful. :slight_smile:
