Draw Order

When I first started using 2012 LT, when you clicked on a line on top of another line a box appeared and you could select from a list which line or object you were trying to select. The box no longer appears. How do I activate it?

 

Also is it possible for me to go back to the selection tool in older versions where you could use the space bar + shift torun through the different lines on screen and then select the right one?

 

Ay help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Turn on Selection Cycling (Icon on the  bottom of the autocad screen, green square in front of a white scquare with a + behind that.

 

Use the arrow keys (up or down) to scroll through the command line history? Have DYN turned on.

Perhaps they removed it from LT, not on mine it doesn't.
