Can't select items

I am new to TC and I'm using Designer 21 64-bit.  I drew a dimensioned subdivision lot, then made a named view and placed it in a paper-space drawing.  To begin a new drawing of a second lot, I saved the model to a new name.  Now, for some reason I can't select any items in model mode.  Even when I create new entities such as a rectangle, I can't select them.  Please help.

Thanks!

Never used designer but it sounds like the layer has become accidentally locked, go to options - drawing setup - layers, and see if the padlock is closed, if it is - click it to open it.

It's always quickest and most efficient to upload/attach the Drawing file here for diagnosis and help.

Having typed that:  There is a setting in Options/General page in the "Save/Open" section that is "Open all files as read only".  I don't have any experience with that, because I have never had it checked.  But check it out... may be your issue.  (note:  We may have to exit and re-start TurboCAD for any changes in that field to take effect.)
