Viewport shaded + wireframe line issue

I’m having some issues with using shaded viewport while wireframe is enabled from object/display when “stacked” with other objects in the scene. This works perfectly when no other objects are in the background or when having the “x-ray” option enabled.

The wireframe isn’t displayed either at all or missing lines. This is a bit problematic when trying to line things up with other objects that are way to complex for the normal wireframe 3d view mode.

  • Default settings, shaded with the object above another, wireframe enabled
  • Same object selected
  • Changed User Preferences, Interface, Line width to “thick”

Changing line width to “thick” seemed to fix this somewhat but the lines are now way too thick other places including the UI.

Is there possibly a fix or better workaround? Thanks in advance!
