This file controls the selection priority when selecting items on the map.

It should contain a list of datatypes, one per line, e.g.:

Primary Line
Secondary Line

Since selection is not mapset-specific, these are combined into a global DataTypePriority based on the MapSpace draw order. See config/FOO/mapspaces/Standard/DrawOrder.txt for details on draw order configuration.

To confirm your configuration and the global results, check the log for messages of the form:

MapSet BAR dataTypePriority = [TAZ, DINGO]
MapSpace-global dataTypePriority = [TAZ, DINGO, BONZO, FILBERT]
