Cannot pick a node ... _on_StaticBody2D_mouse_entered - when sitting on a Colored Rec

My game scene has a Colored Rect… just for looks.

On ready the game generates from Nodes that are game pieces.

I can pick / select them using _on_StaticBody2D_mouse_entered when the colored rect they sit on is not visible or present. But when they sit on top of the colored rect… I suddenly cannot pick them.

I’ve played with Z levels and layer levels, and having no luck.

Anybody ever come across this before? 3.4.4

Think I figured it out… Colored Rect has a Mouse/Filter/Ignore setting.

Even though the color rect is behind my clickable nodes-- seems I have to set this.
