Select all (command A) in a text view/scroll view not working?

I have a text view / scroll view that the users are able to fill in names or whatever other text they want. While it is fully editable I can’t do a select all from either the menu or using the standard mac shortcut of command A. Any idea’s why?

Are you sure you haven’t accidentally removed the Format-menu in the main menu of the xib/nib?

Well I don’t have a format menu in my main menu. But I don’t understand why this would make a difference when in my edit menu I have the original “Select All” item.

Oh, I’m sorry. That’s what I meant. Well then, maybe you can check if the menu item is connected with the selectAll:-method of the First Responder.

Thanks, thats what the problem was.
