Please fix this.
I can't select edge. It's 2 pieces mated together and I can't select edge in any possible way. If I try hard enough I can select a vertex at the end of the line but that's it.
Also if I right click there is no option "select other".
Can you upload the part(s)/assembly and we can take a more in depth look at it?
Just chamfer all edges on 2 boxes, mate them together then try to select an edge.

Or try to mate this 2 tables together.
I've run into this also in the past. Not sure why it does this, but you can make the mate a distance mate with a very small distance instead of using coincident. Make the distance something like .0001" and that should solve the selection problem. In the past I've also just placed a point at the end of one of the lines and then dimensioned to the point.
You can use Isolate to get only one of them showing, and then pick an edge.
Can you RMB Select Other and get an EDGE?
OR, turn the EDGE selection Filter on?
nope. It's as if edge doesn't exist.

What about making one part transparent and enabling Selection Through Transparency (while using the line selection filter)?

A Mating Bug (On hump day, we got issues people)
Since these parts get mated, before you think about selecting the edges, just pull the part away from the fixed part, now select what you want...
(2) Two different sets edge mating is much better then using (3) three mates, select one set of edges in the "Y" direction and the other in the "X" or "Z" or 2 diagonal edges.
I know you can unmate, make a distance, then dimension, then mate back together... but a bug is a bug.
Oh, sounds like you want to make an official bug report. I would call your VAR and report it. This forum is not for that.

found a bug
If I cry hard enough it might get fixed. Unless it's not a bug. So here we determine if it's a bug or not
Don't cry. Instead, did you try the isolate function? Right-click on one component and "Isolate" is in the menu.

If it was a bug it's likely been fixed. I don't have the same problem you're having. I'm on SW 2018. Are you still on SW 2017? It may be that you need to upgrade to get the bug fix. Make sure you're on the latest patch. If you are unable to upgrade you may have to just work around the bug until you can upgrade. I think it's a pretty minor problem. An easy work-around is putting a point on the end of the edge an dimensioning to that or changing the mate from coincident to a .0001" distance mate.
I am still on SW2016. I guess I'll need to try to keep my hair until we buy next version.
I was able to select an edge by choosing "Select Other".
I had no problem selecting an edge between two mated parts. May be a problem with earlier versions of SW. I'm on 2018.
try in drawing. or with part that I attached.

In SW2017 I get similar behavior to what you have described if the view is shown in the following Display Styles: "Hidden Lines Removed", "Shaded With Edges", "Shaded".
Here are some workarounds:
Just me but I would put in a plane at that point and mate the two planes together. It also helps if you change the chamfer or face slightly. with the plane there mates will not be broken.
Also read this one it may apply What happened to the orange highlight when I hover my mouse?
Try changing it from shading to wire frame.
I don't know if this feature is in 2016. If you right-click the part in your assembly. check for the component preview window. you can select faces and edges in the preview window for mates.
Hide one and select the edge from the other.
