My cursor constantly gets stuck on the rotate tool, without me ever having switched there. No matter what I do I cannot get it to switch back to Navigate, Select, etc. without restarting my machine.
The above workaround is not working for me.
I actually just updated my ArcGIS Pro software to 2.7.2. I haven't used it in about a week, but it was working fine the week before last, and since the update finished, it is stuck in the Rotate Tool, which I never even turned on.
I closed the program without saving changes to my project and re-opened it, and the Rotate tool is on from the beginning (opening of the app) still.
I saw another post that suggested it is an issue with Webroot interacting with ArcGIS Pro, so I am going to reach out to my IT department as well and will update you if a solution through them fixes the issue.
