While trying to edit form elements for LO Base I am expecting to be
able to select individual form elements, e.g. to align them, and size
them together. However, using the Ctrl button to select more than one
form element (e.g. text boxes) causes a second box, say, to be selected
and a previous box is deselected.

I thought that maybe my Ctrl key was broken, so I tried it on my file
manager. But there the Ctrl button can be used to select several files
at once, as expected. It suggests, therefore, a problem with

'Edit > Select All' causes nothing to be selected in the LO Base Form
Editor, whereas in the LO Writer it works as expected.

Does anyone know if there is a switch in the Forms editor in Base that
would activate the Select function? I have spent hours looking for a
possible remedy! Very frustrating!!
