can't copy multiple objects

This is probably a stupid question.  For some reason the copy command suddenly started only allowing to select one object.  If I click copy and select a line, then select a second line, it selects the second line and de-selects the first line.  It does allow me to copy multiple objects using a crossing window.  But I cannot individually click multiple objects as it will deselect the previous object with each new click.  I'm sure this must be a simple setting that got unchecked somewhere.

 

thanks

Is your PICKADD system variable set to 1?

Had the same problem with Civel 3D 2011 and this is how I fixed it:

 

* Type in OPTIONS in cammand line, to get Options Dialog Box.

* Click SELECTION tab.

* Under Selection Modes, UNCHECK the "Use shift to add to selection" box.

 

Good Luck - JHB
