Editing cursor won't change back to black

I'm using ArcGIS for Desktop v 10.5 and editing features in a file geodatabase.


When I'm in EDIT mode and I choose "Edit vertices..." the cursor turns from the black arrow to the white arrow. Normally, when I'm done in "Edit Vertices," I do "Save edits" and the cursor jumps back to black and allows me to select and move whole features again.


However, now (as of the last couple of days) it won't change back to black, so I can no longer select the feature. Even if I stop and restart the editing session, the cursor is still white. The only way I can get the black cursor back is to close out my MXD and re-open, which is obviously frustrating and not efficient. 


Are there any mouse strokes or keystrokes to force the cursor back to the black mode?
