Writer switches between what appears to be insert mode and text select. I want to select a block of text and cannot. I'm a new user. Any help is appreciated/ - Tim

If you look at the status bar (lower part of Writer's window), to the left of the icon that indicates if the file have changes that need to be saved you have a menu that allows you to switch between all four select options. The "standard" and "block" selection mores are also available under Edit → Selection mode.
