How do you dismiss sub-tools (Picker, Straighten, etc.) without closing the parent tool?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm assuming I'm missing something really simple, but how do you dismiss, or let go of certain sub-tools?

Two examples:

  • If I activate the Crop tool, then choose its Straighten tool, then decide that a don't want the Straighten tool after all (for example, I decide to just straighten the image by grabbing a corner and rotating manually), I can't (or surely don't see how to) un-choose the Straighten tool. It seems like the only thing I can do is to cancel the entire operation.
  • Same thing with the Picker in a Curves adjustment layer. Once I've clicked on the Picker, I can't get rid of it without closing the layer completely.

I've tried re-clicking the sub-tool, hitting the Escape key, hitting the Delete key (don't do that)...

What am I missing? How do you "let go" of these sub-tools without closing the parent tool?

Hi Kerwin,

Welcome to the forums :)

It seems right clicking works for the straighten tool but not the curves picker. I will move this to the Feature Requests section.

Thanks Callum!

I confirm also your two observations: On my computer too, right click dismisses Straighten (cool!) but not the Picker.
