keyboard shortcut to deselect text tool - Adobe Indesign Windows

I've very recently started using InDesign CS after many years of using Corel Draw for pretty much everything. Who says you can't do a 50-page booklet in Corel Draw! InDesign makes things far too easy... Anyway, I love InDesign except for one or two irritations. One is the text tool.

Is there something similar here I haven't found? I'm fed up of v's ...

    Default keyboard shortcut to deselect text tool

    I've very recently started using InDesign CS after many years of using Corel
    Draw for pretty much everything. Who says you can't do a 50-page booklet in
    Corel Draw! InDesign makes things far too easy...

    Anyway, I love InDesign except for one or two irritations. One is the text
    tool.

    Is there any way to deselect it without clicking out of the text frame first
    or using the mouse to select another tool? In Corel Draw a quick flick of
    CTRL+Spacebar gets rid of the text tool. Is there something similar here I
    haven't found? I'm fed up of v's or extra spaces appearing where I didn't
    intend.

    Oh and I wish I could right click on a swatch for stroke and left click for
    fill... but that's another matter.

    Don't worry, I've sussed it for myself. You can use CTRL+click anywhere on
    the page, even in a text frrame, and then select another tool with the
    appropriate shortcut.

    To exit text frame press Enter - but the one on the numpad!
