Can't select object in rotated view

Question

I've been working on this file for a while & recently have lost the ability to select objects in rotated view. It's a pain to not draw dimensions when the project is aligned horizontally/vertically. My mouse goes to select an object the actual selection point is offset & not where I'm clicking on the screen. I had this problem with another file, but was able to knock it back by switching from Top/Plan to Top & back again. Not for this one though.

If I change the rotation it reverts back to the angle of the original layout. Do I have conflicts with an origin point? Does it matter if some objects are on a screen plane & others the layer plane? I've no idea how that got noodled up. Force select on an object where I 'think' it should be results in the message that there isn't anything there.

 

Unified view is selected with the options selected in all the boxes.

Suggestion 1) Check to make sure that your Class Options are set to Show/Snap/MODIFY others.

 

Suggestion 2) Quit VW's. Restart your computer. Restart VW's.

@CipesDesign,

Suggestion 1 is valid & yes the classes were set to S/S/M others

Suggestion 2 - did that & decided to use a different version of the file.

 

I should have mentioned that I'm using 2020 SP4 on a MacBook Pro running current version of Catalina.

 

Thank you for the quick response!

Hi @KarynT, the peculiarity and temporality of the symptoms you describe, could very well be one of the very many caused by what I call, 'far out objects.' I've encountered this so many times I've created a script to help users diagnose and rectify this condition in their files. Although using an older/backup file has helped, there may still compromising conditions so worth running through the diagnosis stage at least.
