I have created 6 cubes in Object Mode and I can select each of them individually or by box selecting. However when I tab into Edit Mode I am only able to select the last one selected in Object Mode. The remaining 5 cubes will not select. This behaviour is same when trying to select Vertices, Edges or Faces. When I return to Object Mode and change the selection then go back into Edit Mode the object I had been previously able to select will not do so and it is only the one I last selected in Object Mode that will select.
Been on this for hours now and would love some suggestions of thins to try
Additional: I found that I could select the meshes if I added them when in edit mode from the add tab. However, The final 3 meshes all ended up sharing a point of origin which I had not deliberately done. When I deleted them and then went into the Object Mode I could no longer return to the Edit Mode!! I am now as I hit the Undo keys several times.
Been working with Blender for several days now and was enjoying it. Personally this doesn't now feel like a stable release to me!
