1) Are you selecting points or a non-vertical line? ... Either way, it works perfectly for me.
2) Is the Allow selection in HLR and shaded modes option selected in Tools > Options > System Options > Display/Selection? ... Again it works as it should for me.
3) Yada yada yada
When you upgraded the video driver for SW2008, did it affect the other programs you mentioned?
I have a dedicated computer for SW - a Dell M4300 Laptop
The other software runs on an HP Laptop
I loaded 2009 and am seeing much improved drafting performance. Occasionally still have trouble selecting the edge I want when in weldments.
Yes 2008 and all versions lack real AutoCad like drafting qualties.
SW was never a drafting package, that was an afterthought.
Just like ProE for example, great modeling, crappy drawing.
Things I don't like about SW drafting:
-cannot group blocks to dims.
-cannot change properties with a stupid paint brush like AC.
-no jogs in leaders of radii or diameter dims.
-crappy costmetic or hidden thread displays in drawings.
just to list a few.
