Default Left click and drag to do a time selection, gone??

Hello Reapers!

I need some help to fix a weird thing that just happened in the middle of my perfectly normal VO session... all of a sudden, the very simple action "left-click and drag to the right" that I use all the time in order to do a time selection is... gone!
The left click is only moving the cursor on my timeline but I can no longer drag it to do a time selection.

Did I press a wrong button on the way by mistake...???

Try hitting the "L" key. If you previously hit it by mistake, you inadvertently "Locked" your project.

If, by chance, you've assigned the "L" key to do something else, you can turn off Locking by going to the "Options" drop down menu and un-check "Locking Enabled".

... or by toggling the lock (padlock) button on the toolbar.

Default Yes, the "L" key worked!!

Thank God for that! A million thanks to both of you.
Yes, I had inadvertently locked my project... I had no idea one could even do that.
Wonderful, now we're cooking with gas again.

I've actually disabled L for Lock as it's too easy to do it by accident, whereas the Lock icon is only ever one click away.
