    You're not missing anything! There is no way to deselect a tool. Most of us just move back to something pretty innocuous, like the Rectangular Marquee tool - something that won't do any "damage" if it gets hit accidentally. It's a hard concept for some people to get used to, but - think about it - if you're not using a tool, you're using the menu anyway, so it makes no difference. :)

    hmmmm, very interesting. I was thinking more along the lines of maybe buying one just for fun and holding on to it. I suspect Adobe will always have the ideas to stay on top. Then again, they haven't hired me yet.

    Chuck,

    Go back another 6-8 months on 'adobe's chart and see the "peak". But that
    is all old news, today it is China.com and wave systems. WAVX

    Check out oneshare.com. Dunno much about it, but I see their ads everywhere all the time: "Buy one share of your favorite company..." Probably costs as much as four or five through regular channels, but I've never investigated to find out for sure.

    Barb, funny, that's the site i was looking at. There prices seem on target though it's the 'share fee' of $39 that is a killer. Well, it comes framed ( free ) ;)
