Blocks In Elevations Can't Be Selected?

This is a possible suggestion (but also quite likely a misunderstanding on my part) but I can't seem to select an architectural block in elevation/cross section?

 

I have a block of cabinets in a bathroom interior elevation that is unselectable. If I open the block in plan everything works as expected again in the elevation and I can manipulate the individual elements. I can multiselect cabinets and block them, but as soon as I block it I can't select it anymore. This to me appears inconsistent and in my mind it does not seem logical that I can't select blocks and move them and unblock them in elevations.

 

 

Side question, how I can I export an elevation as a pure black and white line drawing without materials in grayscale?

I'll take a stab at this

in the elevation view, vector view, turn off "pattern 3D views", send to cad drawing, export

Thanks Ray, but that only removed the actual pattern in the material, not the gray scale shading.

 

EDIT: I stand corrected, it came out the way I wanted in Layout, but still looks like a grayscale view in plan? Can anyone explain this to me? What if I wanted it to be a grayscale? Only possible as an image?

Maybe check your Display>Color Off settings in PREFERENCES>APPEARANCE. Is it set to Black and White, or Grayscale?
