Pro Graphics Layers

I have random problems with Pro 2.7.1, one being I lose the ability to select a graphic text or shapes.  This happens throughout my team.  The layer turns on/off, but no operation such as moving the text is possible.  

Very frustrating.  Anyone else having this issue?

Work with graphic elements in a map—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

beginning with the section

which leads to

Select features interactively—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

Now if you are talking about selections on layouts etc, there are similar help topics.

The biggest problem is activating the appropriate document to get the tabs visible.

If you want keyboard shortcuts, there are also a number of pages for keyboard shortcuts depending on the active element (eg table of contents, map, scene etc etc)

... sort of retired...

I found the reason.  These graphic layers respect the selectable layers tab, I did not know that.  Hopefully that will help someone in the future.
