ESC Editor Tools!

I have complained about this before and it would take about 5 minutes to fix!  In the Editor, after selecting a tool, you can't "get rid of it!"  The common method is to hit ESC to remove the focus on a tool.  You do it yourself in Capture.  Hit ESC, and clear.  BUT I select an arrow, for example, even after I use the arrow I can't move over the captured image without accidentally "dropping" an arrow.  Just let me hit ESC to clear the active tool.

We released a new version today (Snagit 2018) that, among many other features, includes the ability to press escape to switch to the Move tool. Note that this is a paid upgrade for users who do not have a maintenance agreement. More information on upgrades here:
