Q - question

Cannot select a specific text in my drawing.

A - answer If you are not able to grip-select or window-select a specific text in your drawing, check whether the text is an annotation object displaced (moved) in the current annotation scale. Try to temporarily set the ANNOALLVISIBLE variable to 1.

The problem can be caused also by a text on a locked layer, graphics card (driver) bug or by a drawing coming from a non-genuine DWG file format.
