How do I select by graphic in Pro 2.7.1. I used it in ARC 10.6 but it seems like the feature is gone.

Hello Amanda,

According to this tutorial:

Graphic element selection tools operate independently from the feature selection tools on the Edit tab. You cannot use feature selection tools to select graphic elements, and vice versa. However, graphic elements do remain selected when using feature selection tools and can be copied, cut, or pasted from the Edit tab if the graphic elements were the last copied, cut, or pasted items.

Check if the following workaround works for you.

1. Convert the graphics to polygon feature class. Graphics To Features (Conversion)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

2. Use Select by Location (Input Features = Point layer; Relationship = Intersect; Selecting Features = Polygon Layer)

Think Location
