I just tried this.  From what I can see, and I don't understand why, it looks like you can only select a zero alpha object by "grabbing" at the bounding box.  Move your cursor slowly across the screen.  When it changes from the normal point to the cross/directional/move cursor, that's your cue that you've found the bounding box. 

Hope that helps,

Found myself trying to slice-up a page and realised that I can't select the
rects that are 'invisible'. I make them alpha 0% so they won't show, but then
I can't select them.

I followed HeathenX's tut on youtube, doing everything the same way, but he
selects the hidden rects click-click no problem, I can't do that on my end.

Is there some trick to this?
