I'm not sure if this is a question or an idea for future development as I'm new to Snagit13, after trialling Snagit12.

I find myself using whatever is the active tool when I'm wanting to select an object. I can't de-select the tool easily.

In other applications I'm used to pressing the 'ESC' key or Ctrl-D to de-select.

So far I've found that selecting the Move tool is the only way. A keystroke, like ESC, would be really fast as I'm using the move function repeatedly.
