When I try to select an entity it seems to be selecting the entire layer or something else but not the entity I wanted to select.
This can happen sometimes if a command or macro gets aborted. To fix it, got to Tools >> Options and click on the Select method button. Make sure that "Dialog or Pop Up" is the current method, then Click OK.
Alternatively, you can type in SELBYD at the keyboard, then hit the enter key.
