Deselecting an area
OMG okay I am frustrated.
Is there any way to deselect an area after you've selcted it.

EX: I create a cut out, move my cut out and the dotted line area of cut out is still there.
Or I create a box , but I cant get rid of it....

I know.. It's probably simple but I have been trying and I searched the forums before posting. Please help, Thanks.

Select/None, or Ctrl-Shft-A. You can also just toggle the visibility of the selection border with Ctrl-T.
