 Cannot select text

I am using 2007 and cannot seem to select some text items. Happens in mt and dt in existing drawings. Anyone run into this before?

Give a little more background... What layer are they on? Are they on the defpoint layer? If so is the 0 layer turned off or frozen. That could be one cause.

They are on a separate text layer and pickfirst is on 1. All layers are on and not frozen. None of the selection commands or picks works on this text.

the next guess is:

is the text in model space, and you are in paper space looking at the text through a viewport?

If you can post the example we can find out more!
