Can't edit after using Cut out

Snagit 13: I used the Cut Out tool to edit a portion of the image, then I wanted to apply an edge effect to the entire image. I can't get out of cut out mode. Effects are unavailable, Escape doesn't do anything. Every time I move over the image, the cut out dots appear. How do I proceed with editing?

Hi there

Normally when I encounter this, I just click the selection tool to escape.

Cheers... Rick :)

Yes, the selection tool gets you out of jail, as will selecting ANY other tool.  I think it's because you can't add effects to a cut out.  Therefore the  standard practice of retaining the last tool selected means that you are trapped.  It's disconcerting but the behaviour is actually consistent with other tools.

You do get used to it after a while
