Visio 2013 deleting multiple items issue

If I select multiple objects (either by shift-clicking on them or dragging an area) in Visio 2013 and try to delete or cut them all together, random other objects on the page are also getting deleted or cut.  I've had to resort to viewing the full page when I cut a group of objects to make sure nothing else is going with them.

Has anyone else experienced something similar?  Were you able to correct it?  I use this feature all the time, so I'm about to revert to 2010 (or upgrade to 2016 if anyone can confirm it's not also a problem there).

Look in the Options (ribbon File -> Options) in the Advanced section and look at the boxes:
a. Delete connectors when deleting shapes
b. Select shapes partially within area

If what Paul described doesnt solve your problem, check if some shapes are maybe grouped, so you delete the whole group instead of the shape.
In that case, just ungroup them.
