Q1:  I can't Drag to Select multiple ellipses (each is on its own layer).  Is this something in my Snapping Settings?  

Q2:  at the Bottom pop up menu when move tool is active are the following choices:  Add to selection; select under; select inside; about center; and then 6 more small icons  -- what are these for???

here is what my current Snapping settings are:

Note that under Document> Snapping:

there are these settings: (is this why I can’t drag/select multiple objects?)

Enable Snapping is turned OFF

Force Pixel Alignment is turned OFF

Preset is set to Custom

Snapping shouldn't make a difference when drag selecting, make sure the Move Tool is being used. There is an option in the apps Preferences >  Tools > Select object when intersects selection marquee. This just means that any objects that have overlapping bounding frames are selected as well.

If you are still having issues with drag selecting can you do a quick screen recording.

The built in help shows what each of the icons are for on the Context toolbar when the Move Tool is selected.
