Unselect tool

Post by jschinka »

I am a new user making good progress, but have a basic problem and have been unable to find answer on Corel and other tutorials. So, very basic problem. I select a tool such as crop and proceed to crop photo. Tool remains active. How do I return to NO TOOLS ACTIVE status? Sorry this is so basic, but have spent a lot of time exploring Esc, Ctrl D, etc. with no luck.

When I'm done with a tool, I will move on to the next tool I want to use and that effectively deselects the previous tool. If I'm done editing I usually click on the Pan tool (looks like a hand).
