Object cannot be selected



Hoping someone can help. I have some rectangles that I copied and pasted from another Vectorworks file that is now showing up in my new file as just a gray outline and I cannot select it or delete it even though I have my Design Layers and Classes set as "show/snap/modify others"

Any tips what I can do to select and delete these rectangle outlines from my drawing? 

 Thank you!

Could they possible be on a layer with a different scale? 

Do you have Unified View turned on? If so, objects on layers of different scales don't show.


Can you right click on one of the rectangles and choose Force Select? That will change the layers and classes as necessary to make the object selectable.

... or perhaps the new objects are in a class set to gray, and therefore cannot be selected?
