This article helps you '''solve problems with selecting objects'''.
+
 
+
== Why can't I select an object? ==
+
 
+
Right-clicking an object and choosing '''Edit''' from the pie menu normally selects it. Alternatively, in Edit mode, you can drag and draw a selection rectangle over the objects. If both of these fail to make object outlines appear, indicating they've been selected, try this:
+
 
+
# Click the '''Tools''' menu.
+
#* Uncheck '''Select Only My Objects''' if you're trying to select objects owned by another Resident. This includes a friend who's [[I_want_to_build_something_with_other_people;_how_do_I_let_them_edit_my_objects%3F|given you permission to edit their objects]].
+
#* Uncheck '''Select Only Movable Objects''' if you're trying to select an object you can't move. This is generally determined by '''Allow anyone to move''' in the '''General''' tab of the build tools, but also applies to group-deeded objects, and objects a friend has allowed you to edit.
+
#* Uncheck '''Select By Surrounding''' if you have a difficult time using the selection rectangle to select objects.
+
# Try re-selecting your desired objects to see if it works.

{{KBnote|Selecting an object doesn't mean you're going to modify it. Often, selecting an object is done to observe some of its attributes in the build tools, such as who created it.}}
