After selecting something with the selection tool, it turns into the "layer adjuster" and I can't figure out how to switch it back into a selection tool. I messed around with the options and checked the help section, but I couldn't figure out how to switch the layer adjuster back into a selection tool.
Below, on the left shows before I make a selection. The right shows after I've adjusted a selection. I can't figure out to switch the tool back.
I'm using Corel Painter Essentials 5.
Have you tried clicking and holding on the toolbar? It should open up a flyout, allowing you to choose the selection tool again. Alternatively, does the "r" key work to switch to the rectangular select tool?
I had not tried that and it worked. :) Thank you very much, I didn't even think to try that.
