My Select Tool Cursor is a Double Circle

My cursor while using the select tool is a circle within a circle. I'm assuming I pressed a hotkey and I can't get out of it, tried pressing all the buttons.

If I select multiple objects it keeps them all selected. I tried googling and could not find anything. Is anyone familiar with this feature and can tell me how to turn it off?

Hi,

 

This is because you have enabled Drag selection mode.

Double click on the selection tool to bring up the tool settings and set the selection style back to marquee.

 

Note: drag selection is mainly used for components since it only selects the closest component under the cursor. This is different then marquee which selects all components inside the region - even if they are on the back of the mesh.

 

Drag selection can be temporarily activated by holding down the Tab shortcut key.
