After downloading ArcGIS Pro 2.3. When I hit the select tool with one layout active and then move to the next layout the select tool is no longer active.  Instead it changes to the pan tool.  This is greatly impacting my work flow. Can I deactivate this in my settings?  Is there a shortcut to for the select tool? I attached a video.

This sounds like a BUG to me.  If I use the Select command from the Map core tab, it doesn't change to the Pan command.  If I use the Select command from the Edit core tab, it does change to the Pan command.  I recommend logging a Bug report with Esri Support Services.

What is the state of this option

Jennifer, 

Thanks for the video.  It looks like you are working with Map Views and not with Layout views. This can determined by the state of the ribbon at the top of the app and by the icon present in each view's tab. I've circled these in the screenshot below.

I was able to reproduce the issue you describe using version 2.3.2. However, I could not reproduce with version 2.4 (currently under development). I believe this issue has been addressed.

Hope this help, 

Tom
