Tool selection gets stuck

Recommended Posts

Sometimes tool would get stuck and won't change via keys or even tool bar. Sometimes hand tool, sometimes zoom tool. GIF shows its stuck in zoom mode, but fixes itself when I select move tool.

Having the same problem. v 1.7.3 It always gets stuck on View Tool(H) even when not selected--seemingly at random--sometimes after a few minutes, sometimes after longer. Can open and work on a new document with no problems, but original document always requires closing and reopening file to un-stick tool.

(Is there another place to report these specific kinds of issues or is this is?)

Hi antonkudin, ericoalex,
There's a known issue that leaves the cursor/tool (hand cursor) stuck when using the shortcuts to zoom out (space + alt). Is this that's causing these issues for you? Do you use those shortcuts? If so pressing space once (when the cursor gets stuck) should un-stuck/release the cursor/tool.
