Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, Shane.

Under Preferences, for Tools, there's an option that may be relevant:

If that option is turned off, then your "drag" must entirely surround an object for it to be selected. If on, then as long as your drag touches some part of an object it will be selected.

Thanks for your reply,
I have this option selected and it still wont work, would you have any other ideas as to what going. If not then this might have to be reported as a bug.

No other ideas, unless you can share a video of the problem. Actually, one other idea: check the Layers panel and make sure your objects aren't locked.

And, by the way, you've already reported it as a bug, given that you posted it in the bug forum :)  It just hasn't been reported to the developers yet by the QA team .
