shift key not working

I am trying to select multiple objects by using the shift key. it will not allow me to do this. using version CS4. the shift key does work in all other cases such as in type....
is there  a preference that needs to be changed?
please respond asap.

RE: shift key not working

You do have either the black or white arrow tool selected, yeah?
Sorry if that sounded like a silly question, but I don't know your level of experience
