Visible but Unselectable Curve Object

I attempted to join two curves and the curve object turned black and while it is visible, it cannot be selected. I did try SelBadObjects command and nothing is reported. I window selected the area and turned on the control points. This object displays no control points. Rhino 7 running on macOS Catalina 10.15.7 any ideas?

Did it get locked accidentally?

Helvetosaur, is there a way that I could check that?


although i don’t think it’s being locked

Type “Unlock” and see if anything changes.

If not, you will probably need to post the file here so someone can look.

I have listened to the oracle and here is the result! No unapproachable, unselectable dark curve. Thank you.
