All of a sudden I can't select anything on my drawings

Question

The only way to select a wall, window, text is to 'force select' it -- what happened?  Layers and classes are all turned on to show/snap/modify and we restarted the computer and VW2020... did we accidentally turn something on / off?

Force Select should only be necessary for objects that are on a different layer/class. and depending on the options.

 

Check that your Layer Options and Class Options are set to Show/Snap/Modify Others.

Thanks Pat -- (Layers and classes are all turned on to show/snap/modify) -- what do you mean 'the options'?

Layer options and Class Options were what I was thinking.

 

Another option might be having a layer of a different scale active.  Or a big object on a layer higher in the stacking list that is somehow hiding the objects form the cursor?

 

Beyond that all I can suggest, especially if it is just one file, is to post the file and see if it is your machine or if it travels with the file.
