I haven't used ArchiCAD in a while. Is it true that shift-click no longer works to select an object when some tool other than the arrow tool is selected? Is this the way its supposed to be (I hope not- shift-click has always been my perferred way of selection) or is there something odd with my system?
I'm using a Mac with 10.2.8. I have a scroll wheel mouse and a track pad on my laptop; neither one will select with a shift-click.
I think Dwight is refering to the "Curser Snap Range" found in Options/Preferences/Mouse Constraints and Methods.
When I try to set it to zero it changes to 1 and I can still Shift/Click while on any tool. It may be a video card issue (just a guess)

My cursor snap range was set to 3. I tried changing it to 1, but it didn't make any difference.
I'm wondering if the problem has something to do with my Kensington scroll wheel mouse. The scroll wheel gives me a zoom, which is OK but sometimes I'd like to be able to just have a scroll. I haven't seen any preference to control this.
When I right-click on something it is selected (and everything else is deselected), and the editing dialog box comes up. This seems as it should be.
When I shift-click, it starts drawing with whatever tool is selected, just like an ordinary click. It seems to be igniring the shift.
we had a whole bunch of selection problems a little while back when using teamwork files...
elements newly created or copied and pasted in would sometimes lose their way in the database even though they displayed ok on screen. in other instances, shift-clicking one element would select another in a completely different part of the screen, (or worse - somewhere off screen)!
the only thing that would cure it was a send & receive - i guess that the elements were then written to the database and assigned to a team mate using them. very strange behaviour as i said, but it seems to have been fixed now...
