Trouble selecting lights/cameras/text/etc..

Hi all,

Beginner's question- It seems I can't select lights, cameras or (unbevelled) text by just clicking on them in 'select and move' mode. All other objects can be selected normally. I can only select them through the 'manage layers' window. Any idea why this is? Some setting maybe? I'm using 3D Studio Max 2010.

There's a window on the top bar of the interface in Max that lets you filter what you are able to select in the various views. I don't have Max open, but it's one of the window type boxes with a pull down on the right side. Check to make sure that its' set to "ALL". You can set it to select only lights, cameras, geometry, etc.. Maybe it's set to limit your choices.
