add a cube from the shift a list, it was placed in amonst another cube which had been scaled out before hand. the two items then became all one item and could not be worked on, or moved as serpeate items, only together.
i had cleared the default cube and made a sprial stair case, then added a floor at the top, this was another cube which i scaled and made cover a area. then added the cube to become another element. but it all went wrong.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
I have repeated this and it was all fine, so i may be giving you a lot of rubbish. Sorry about that.
Based on the default startup or an attached .blend file (as simple as possible).
