Maybe you've locked the selection by pressing the space bar?

I think I did press space bar. I pressed it again and nothing happened.
I restarted and it remembered to edges it was stuck on, but now I can click away from them
thanks Steve

Never had anything like this happen to me before...

Try pressing 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 with the Edit Poly modifier selected. Should cycle between Vertices to Elements.

Try saving it, resetting max (File>Reset>Yes, you're sure>No save), then Import>Merge File into Scene>this file.

I find edit poly a bit bugged. It sometimes won't let you change views using hotkeys... other times does some other shit. Whenever I can I only use editable poly. Sounds like the same thing, and it should be, but it's not (at least for max 2011).

Actually, Steve, I would recommend a different tutorial for creating the face. "Life of a Sea Turtle" is excellent for covering the whole process of creating a character from beginning to end but for JUST modeling the face go try:

Note: the guy is using MAYA but that shouldn't be a problem. The major difference is he always uses "append polygon tool" which Max doesn't have, instead we have "bridge" and "cap." Good luck.
