Can't seem to select multiple objects with a mouse drag...

Recommended Posts

Could just be something I'm doing wrong, but would be one of those small things that just make the program a little easier.

Do I need to activate something to do this? I used to click anywhere and start a rectangular selection area in PP as long as no other tool was selected. Now nothing happens when I do this. Also, I used shift + click to select multiple object on the page or on the Layers list and this no longer works.

I am wasting so much time learning such basic stuff that are different from PP and from most apps and not quite intuitive. I mean, shift+click or ctrl+click is pretty universal for selecting several items, why won't it work in AP?  Please help.

Both shift-click and dragging a rectangle should work to multi-select with the Move tool. If they don't, something has gone wrong. I'd try quitting and restarting the app, in case it has got confused about something.
