Thanks for your report. Please indicate if this is a one time event or reproducible. I.e. are the line tools shown instead of the selection tools every time when you click the selection tool button in the CAD tool bar at the left?

The problem behaviour seems to happen when the "Active Tool" is NOT showing as "none". If the active tool is showing as, for example, a line or ellipse, then clicking the "Selection Tools" button brings up the line options.

Example sequence:

Click Reset/Idle button in top tool bar - Active tool shows "none" - click Selection Tools in Cad bar - select options show.

Click Back button (CAD bar) - tool options show.

Click Line Tools button (CAD bar) - line options show.

Click Line from 2 points button - Active tool shows 2 point line - 2 point options show.

Click back button twice - Active tool shows 2 point line - tool options show.

Click Selection Tools in Cad bar - Active tool shows 2 point line - 2 point options show.

Click back button - Active tool shows 2 point line - selection options show - behaviour as 2 point line active. (x)

(Now I've just notice something else in switching between QCAD and my Safari window to write this post: As soon as I move to the Safari window, the CAD bar changes to the 2 point line options.)

Continuing from state (x):
Click a selection option - Active tool shows 2 point line - 2 point options show - behaviour as 2 point line active.

I hope this is helpful.
