Trouble picking items on a large, magnified drawing

Sometime, when working in a large drawing, with an area of the drawing magnified, I will try and pick objects, but the pick box jumps back and forth over the line, but will not actually pick it. I have to back the magnification down, and then I cannot see the exact object to pick. Anyone know the siolution for this problem?

have you tried a regen? I find when I zoom in close sometimes the lines aren't in their actual locations until you regen

In that case, turn them off.
SNAP / Off
OSMODE / 0

Turning the snap off worked. A small thing to do, but a giant step for my work! thank you! Dave Neiderbach
