Problem with 'Shape to Block' command in Express Tools

Does anyone know how to get the 'Shape to Block' command to work (under express tools).

It says select object, but no matter what object I select eg. circle, pline or line, it says invalid selection.
I am running AutoCAD 2012.  Has anyone been able to use this command?  What am I not doing? are 'shape' objects somehow different from any other objects?

I'd be gratefully for any help you can offer....

As the command says, you can only select a shape (SHP), no other entities as circles or lines.
