UNABLE TO RELEASE TOOLS
This has never happened before. I clicked on a tool and cannot cancel it. I can pick up another tool but it is impossible to work on a document if the tool is hovering over.

No one seems to know what to do.

Doesn't matter. It seems like something is locked. I have gone through the program so mny times I am weary. In the manual it tells you how to pick up the tool but not to cancel using a tool. FRUSTRATED.

Oh... there is no "No tool". You always have some tool active. You cancel a tool only by activating another one. If you want an innocuous one use the "Measure" tool.
