I have a really annoying 'marquee' type thing that I can't get rid of - not even closing the app gets rid of. I have typed in marquee into Help, and searched through 'layers' in the help section, but nothing seems to refer to it.

Can anyone tell me how I can get rid of it?

 

i don't even remember what I did to select it!

Could be a selection Marquee? If so Cmd or Ctrl D, or from the menu Select > Deselect.

Walt.Farrell you are a genius!

 

'Undo' always used to solve the problem, but only when I recognised I had done it. Today I was selecting lots of things and doing lots of colour changes, so I couldn't see when I had done it to undo it. 

 

Can't believe whatever it is stays selected even when you close the app though ...

 

Anyhow, thanks very much :)

Don't quote me... I think there is a preference setting for that.
