I have a layer which contains three shapes on them.  However, I can't select them.  I tried CTRL + A  Nothing happens.  When I go into layer properties.  I CAN change them into gray color but I still can't select them.  Layer properties also shows active, clue visible and print.  Still CTRL A doesn't work.
No other layers are visible.
And these shapes only reside on this one layer.
Question:  How can I select these shapes and delete them?

If you post the file we might be able to help more but :-

Can you delete the layer or is there other information on there??
Are you sure they are shapes and not part of a background image?
If you 'Show Shapesheet' are there any rules or parameters set which would indicate locking?
