Space bar Commands

Hello all, 


I used to be able to simply select a line, PL and or  blocks, hit the letter "E" to erase and then "Space-Bar" and it would erase the object. Now I have to hit the 'E" first then select the object, then hit the space bar. What can I do to set it back to how i used to do it?


Same thing happens with the Move command. 


Help please

I think it is the nown / verb selection check box on the selections tab of the Options dialog.


See attached picture.


Also can be accessed by typing pickfirst at the command prompt.

Make sure PICKFIRST is set to 1
