Title: Suggestion: default tool
Post by: nemyax on July 31, 2015, 11:18:39 am
I'd like to pitch the notion of "default tool". It's the tool which is active by default and which you expect to spend most of your time using. For the point editor, it could be the move tool, for the sequence editor the rotate tool, and so on. The choice of tool can be made configurable.
The reason for this is that you often lose track of the mode you're in as you switch tools. For example, you find yourself cutting stuff by mistake when you want to move it. Importantly, there should be a very simple keyboard shortcut for going back to your default mode, such as a double Esc.

I've never had those issues and also if you had the move tool set as the default, what would there be to move if nothing has been created (blank project).
