I had forgotten about opening the Inspector with double-click, I had got into the habit of opening from the contextual menu. The bug is not happening just now so I can’t check if double-click will always work correctly.

The Inspector does change to the desired object if I then select the object, so it is not a complete disaster.

Clearing the preferences doesn’t help (had to do that after upgrading to 9.6.3 because the bottom part of the script editor disappeared - did anyone ever find out what triggered that? - but the IP bug happened before and after clearing Preferences).

I don?t know what triggers it, but once it starts happening it always happens; relaunching LC restores sanity for a while. This is on a Mac using Catalina LC 9.6.3 but it has been happening for  while now.
