To be able to manipulate your object, you will always need the Selection tools.

In SelfCAD, the selection tools are found in the right-hand side of the workspace as shown below:

To be able to select your object, you can click on it or click on the box on the scene section and vice versa.

Additionally, you can also select your object (s) easily using the Marque Selection tool. This is done by dragging and dropping around the object or objects that you need to select and leave out the rest. And to deselect the objects, you will repeat the same process as above.
