inverted selection

Hi while using the keyboard and working in audacity I changed something. The highlight is now on the outside of the wave part instead of on the wave part itself. I tried looking for a solution but not sure how I would word this and haven’t found anything searching…

Can anyone help?

Post a screen capture of what you have now. Try to select something and post the error.

Try pressing F1 on your keyboard to go back to Selection Tool. I think you may have turned on Multi-Tool (F6) or Envelope Tool (F2) .
