Also another problem with path.contains that I find is that the contains would use this as check area > https://doc.qt.io/archives/qt-4.8/images/graphicsview-pathitem.png Which means that the shape can be bigger/inaccurate comparing to the selection location... I think I will need to do some math and create another method for path click intersection. Ok I sorta managed to "fix" it... I ended up creating a forward and then reverse path during selection process. So that the path is a closed - precise - shape. This way I can get proper click detection, I still cant compute which path is closer, but at least selection works properly now.
