A second keyboard shortcut for move tool

Recommended Posts

Often after just using the artistic text tool I need to move the text. One's instinct is to press the "v" for the move tool, but of course that will type "v" and not summon the move tool. One has to select, with the cursor, the move tool from the list of tool icons. I  would like a second keyboard shortcut for the move tool that could be used when text is selected on the screen which wouldn't cause typing.
