Exact same problem here. Except my selected state disappears in half a second. The motion required to grab it is almost a double-click. > Any ideas how to fix? My first fix was to change the default ImageSize to something larger. I think the required fix was at Edit->Preferences->Graphics options->Image bounding box->Image size. When I need a different plot size, I usually pass an explicit ImageSize to my plotting functions. e.g. Plot[Sin[x],{x,0,10},ImageSize->400] Later, Daniel Running Mathematica 5.1 for Linux (October 25, 2004) on Slackware-latest
