    I have found this problem when the linework is on layer "Defpoints" and layer "0" is switched off or frozen. Just switch layer "0" back on and the items will be selectable.

    The 0 layer is on, no change. I have just worked out that the corruption happens when i change the standard font to Arial, which is the way that we prefer our drawings to look now. Don;t know if that will be any help

    Ah, text detritus. I actually get this alot, it is a display problem, have you tried a "REGENALL"? That usually clears it for me.

    Okay.

    You have about 22000 text objects that contain no text.

    Type QTEXT, select On and do a REGEN. Then you will be able to select them.
