Toggling between tools

Question

I'm sure I used to be able to toggle between a tool and the 2D slection tool but I don't seem to be able to do so any more. For example if I'm using the offset tool and I want to select something else to offset, I press the X key and it toggles to the 2D tool. Having then selected what I want, if I press the X key again it doesn't toggle me back to the selection tool - and I'm sure it used to. Its possible that its stopped doing it since I downloaded the recent upgrade. Any ideas? Am I doing something wrong?

That feature was introduced in (I think) VectorWorks 8.5.1, but so many users disliked it and asked us to remove it that it was disabled for 8.5.2.

Oh what a pity. I can't think why it was disliked. I found it very convenient and timesaving. Couldn'y you reintroduce it in VW9 but allow people turn it on or off in one of the preferences dialogue boxes?
