Selection box within a closed sketch, help

In older SolidWorks versions I could create a selection box within my sketches allowing me to select multiple entities (typically to delete). However in SolidWorks 2018 if I LBC and try to drag to create the selection box it just selects the entire outside closed drawing and begins to drag. How do I turn this off?
