Ever since I installed HotS, I've been unable to select enemy units. Is this a new feature with the expansion or did is there an option to change that?

This one has the better title and is asking about the basic problem, I'd prefer to close the other as a dupe of this. – Matthew Read Mar 13 '13 at 15:06
@MBraedley I would agree with Matthew that this one should be kept open. In 22 hours this one has gotten 297 views where the other was posted 20 days ago and only has 375 views. The other one has a bad title which is why I didn't notice the similarities in our questioning. – Falcon165o Mar 14 '13 at 12:07

This is a new feature in Heart of the Swarm which was introduced in the Beta.

It is default set to not enable Enemy Unit selection.

It can be changed in the Gameplay options.

 Options -> Gameplay -> Enable Enemy Units Selection

It's a misnomer, because turning it off also prevents you from selecting neutral creatures, mineral patches, and other things. – Kyralessa Sep 24 '14 at 2:41

I found out its an option in the menus. Options -> Gameplay -> Enable Enemy Units Selection Options -> Game Play -> Enable Enemy Units Selection

I'm not sure why Blizzard doesn't make by default.
