I have installed Lightwave 8 on my mac mini and for some strange reason point selection only seems to be available when in wireframe mode.

Polygon selection shows as normal and everything else in the application works fine.

I have tried every version of Lightwave 8 from a clean install up to 8.5 to eliminate the issue with no luck; updated the drivers for the graphics card and disabled the hub.

Is this an issue anybody has any experience of?

Any other suggestions that might cure this issue would be most welcome
It's driving me nuts and makes working on complex models very difficult.

Many thanks

Quick update: I tried starting the machine up in "safe boot" mode and the issue goes way - the trouble is finding what still might be the problem?

well it looks like it's already a known issue in particular with certain ATI cards - the only other known fix here http://www.newtek.com/forums/showthread.php?t=44800 apart from booting up in safe mode as I found.
