The selection tool has always been a bit inconsistent. Mostly you click the object to select it, except:
1. Stroked lines: you have to click the path to select it no matter how thick the stroke. This makes it counter-intuitive and also very difficult to select these. It would be so much easier and intuitive to select any part of the stroke.
2. Text: you can click a strangely large area above and below and around text which is invisible and not in any way part of the text. This makes it difficult to select objects around and below the text because you are often inadvertently selecting neighboring text. It would be much more intuitive to only be able to click on the text itself to select it (as you would after it is outlined).
3. Drop shadows: it is probably actually selecting part of the shadow but the outer spread is not visible and much larger often than the shadow appears to the eye. It would be more intuitive if only the visible part of the shadow effect was selectable.
