I cannot reproduce this with either the latest stable or current development versions of Blender:

Please try the latest daily build: https://builder.blender.org/download/

Go to File โ†’ Defaults โ†’ Load Factory Settings and then load your file to see if you still can reproduce this issue.

If the problem persists, please give us more clear instructions on how to reproduce it from scratch.

just installed todays 2.81 build and reset to factory defaults. Same problem.

Additionally I've noticed that if I try the same on a 1080p monitor it selects even less. My video is on a 4k monitor.

Thx for getting back.
Is this about updating the properties editor (as the report tiltle suggests)?
Or about viewport selection failing for small objects? (I can repro that, but that would be a duplicate of T63356: Small object are not selected with Box Select tool...)

I've just tested a bit more and found that the problem is only with box select. lassoo and circle select work properly it seems.

ah crap, sorry I didn't read the title properly and thought I was replying to a different bug I raised :D Yes close this one, the properties section is updating correctly now.
