Trying to use survey mode to determine which image I like best but I can't select more than one image at a time.  I'm pressing on shift, command, option....tried them all alone, together, nothing works.

It works here with the latest version, both from Library Grid view and Loupe view, so maybe you could try restart

1. go to Library
2. Select multiple images in Grid view by Ctrl/Cmd clicking on several images
in Bread Crumbs bar are more than one selected?
3. If yes Press [ N ] key if no repeat step 2. 

What happens?

That's the whole problem, I can't select more than one photo at a time.  Not sure why this is happening.  UGH!!!  It's taking me forever to cull through my pictures because I can't look at a group together.  I'm wondering if it is in my settings somewhere!! 
Thank you so much for trying to help.

So, 

In Grid View you select one photo by clicking on it ... you hold down CTRl/CMD and click a second and it doesn't select the second photo?

If you go in to Finder/Explorer can you select more than one item there using the same keyboard/mouse combination?

Ctrl/Cmd is for selecting random photos,
Click one and Shft + click in the other end is for selecting consecutive photos.
Both works for me in Library Grid view and Film strip

It's not "shift-command-option", it's just Command-Click (with mouse) to select multiple images. Since you said "Command" I assume you are using a Mac?
