After editing an element ((Feature class or shapefile or annotation) and double-clicking or pressing F2 to confirm an edit can the element then be "unselected" by default?
Right Now, he default is the element remains selected.
Inevitably I return to layout view and notice it's still selected, have to re-activate the map, and clear it and then return to the layout. (I know I'll eventually change my behavior....)
In ArcMap once you hit F2 or double-clicked your element moved but the selection of the element turns off automatically. You'd need to re-select it to further edit. I looked under the Project Options to see if this was a setting but did not see any options to change this behavior.
