Select Objects - Objects on Chart Sheet
Currently I can use the 'Select Objects' tool to select multiple Shape objects in a worksheet. However, if I try to use the same tool to select multiple Shape objects in a Chartsheet it just doesn't work
As soon as I depress the mouse button to start selecting objects prior to dragging a selection area over the objects of interest it just selects the chart object precluding me from being able to drag a selection area over the Shape objects that I wish to select sitting on top of the chart object
Furthermore; shapes objects I draw in a worksheet appear in the objects 'Selection Pane'; shape objects I draw on a Chartsheet do not appear in the 'Selection Pane'
Please allow the user to select multiple shape objects sitting on top of a Chart; this used to work fine in Excel 2010

I've never used the Select Objects tool to select objects in a chart or on a chart sheet, but I can see how it would be helpful. I can verify that it did in fact work in Excel 2010 and does not work in Excel for Microsoft 365.
