Issues with making selections in solidworks

Hi all -

I had a question which I was wondering if anyone had similar issues with. I don't recall it every being this bad, but I have been having issues

with selecting items when I am working in Solidworks 2014. There is no one set example it is pretty much across the board.
I am not sure if maybe it is an issue with my mouse (I have a Microsoft notebook 5000 mouse I use)

When I am in my document, although the mouse isn't visibly choppy it feels like it hesitates before it will actually go onto the area I am trying t select, be

it a point or line in my sketch or a tool icon, etc...

I guess my first question is -

Has anybody had similar issues?

Could it be I need a new mouse or is it software related?

Is there a way to control the sensitivity of selection items?

If I am working in a sketch, for example, sometimes to select a point or a line it feels as if I have to hit that EXACT pixel to grab the item I want - which is

extremely frustrating and has led to a lot of lost time in my workflow


Any insight is appreciated.


Thank you
