Does anyone know how to get the selection/deselection using shift to function properly when there are images xref'd to a drawing? I know if you have raster design there is a menu (ioptions) where you can turn off the option that 'shift + select' automatically selects the image rather than deselecting, but ioptions doesnt seem to work if you dont have raster design and I cant find an options dialog that allows me to turn this off otherwise!

Whether the image frame is on or off 'shift+select' picks it and adds it to my selection. I want to turn that feature off. PICKADD doesn't alter this. I want to be able to select and then remove certain objects from said selection by pressing shift. Or, use shift to swap between trim and extend without having to pick a different command. The image options prevents this.
I have attached an image of the raster options which shows where you can turn this off if you have raster. However my system doesn't have raster and I cant find where to turn it off otherwise.
MAPIOPTIONS is apparently the command I was looking for. It pulls up the options menu in normal cad where I can turn off the image select feature.
You must not be using plain AutoCAD then... .
I don't have the 2014 suite in front of me right now, but I wonder if MAPIOPTIONS is an alias for IOPTIONS (in a suite with ARD included?)
Actually MAPIOPTIONS and IOPTIONS are different commands, but both include the toggle for "Shift+Left Click image select"
