I had this happen to me yesterday.

 

Every other file was fine but after I did a screenshot a website page I had placed a t-shirt design on and placed it into PDN I couldn't use the Rectangle Select tool.

Exactly the same as the video above

The case in the program is likely, if not only for me it happens.

I've been experiencing this a lot lately and was about to take some screen shots.  I have to try about 3 times before I can get the Rectangle Select to stay put!

I occasionally get a report of this behavior ... However, I don't know how to reproduce the issue.

 

If someone can come up with a step-by-step list of instructions of how to reliably reproduce this, then I can probably fix it.

I have this issue also. Just updated the program today but I recall having this issue occasionally before. As others have noted, the selection tools work fine in other open files. It's hit or miss and there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason. I was thinking it might be my Wacom intuos pad & pen, but the mouse doesn't work either. I saved the affected file as is, closed it, reopened & the selection tool immediately worked perfectly again. So....gremlins, I guess?

Thanks for the answer.
If it turns out sometime then I'll write.
Can others who write if they understand when this happens.

Again I tried the same files, but now everything is fine, I can not repeat the error. I took another video.

@welshblue Hmm, a performance trace won't help here ... I wasn't able to reproduce what you're seeing. I'm guessing it's much more involved than just that fragment of repro steps.

Problem solved!! My Microsoft USB mouse has been a bit peculiar, not always performing drag and drop as it should, so I pulled in an old Dell USB mouse. Today, I decided to test the new mouse on rectangle select, and it's now working fine.  So, try changing your mouse.
