All I have is cross hairs now. I don't know where the little select element bubble went but I need it back. help?
Try menu Workspace|Preferences. In the Preferences dialog, choose Input. Have you modified one of the Locate options?

If the cursor itself is a giant cross hair on the screen, try either
Workspace > Preferences > Input > Pointer Size - set this to Normal
Use the KeyIn "set cursor small" without the quotes

I'm assuming you have crosshairs, but what you want is a mouse cursor with the selection bubble. Either use your element selection tab to select the crosshairs with the center circled, or use the shortcut "Y".
Maybe you just changed your default selection preference from "single" to "block" or something else. Happens to me frequently by accident. With activated element selection hit CTRL+SPACEBAR and you get the following window:
Then just choose the upper left option and you have your bubble back.
