Sometimes i have plenty of shapes that overlaps each other and i need to grab few points of single shape and reposition them. Whenever i press LMB and drag to box select several points it selects not only points of currently active shape but points that are in other shapes aswell. Is there a way to limit this kind of selection to select only points within the selection box that are part of the currently active shape/path?

Other than packing paths into groups, locking layers etc?

You can first isolate the path in isolation mode (double click on the path or right click and then choose from context menu) and then box select.
