I don't know what I have done inadvertantly, but I must have used a keyboard combination that has changed something.

As a result I cannot :

shift select nor marquee select

press shift to constrain a line direction nor shift to constrain a line or object alteration.

Hope you can help.

It sounds the shift bug.

OS 10 has a problem with Shift, Cmd, and Apple keys. They simply stop working. When this happens, a simple restart of the computer works, just as Kevin mentioned.

I see you are using 10.2.8 - most of the function keys problems mentioned above were mostly resolved by this version.

If you haven't done so in a while, run disk utility in the utility folder. Make sure you run verify and fix disk permissions. The problem should happen alot less often once run this.
