It works for me in 3.0.1, OSX 10.3.2.

Did you try restarting your computer? High Sierra tends to forget its basic functions from time to time, I've found.

It does work - you need to hold the left mouse button down for a couple of seconds - this behaviour is also observable in Pages.

Not Strange: this bug arrived with High Sierra in Scrivener v2, and has persisted in Scrivener 3. A restart fixes it for me; sometime putting the machine to sleep and waking it back up. High Sierra is the buggiest Apple release I can remember in OS X.

This is indeed a very annoying problem. For some reason I find the situation worse in Scrivener (3.0.1) than in many other applications, but then I use it more in Scrivener so perhaps notice it more there. Nice to at least understand it is a MacOS bug rather than a Scrivener one, though if the latter we would have had more chance of getting it fixed :?
