    tldr: the "workaround" if I can remember to do this is to get in the habit of after creating a text box to press esc three times.

    Any hotly debated option is ripe for a change in settings/preferences. Please make this available. It drives me nuts how many times I do exactly the following:

    0 - Press v, grab shapes and text boxes, move them around, etc. Do this all day long. Then...

    1 - Press T
    2 - Click on the screen with my mouse.
    3 - type my text
    4 - Press esc to communicate I'm done typing.
    5 - Click somewhere else.
    6 - Press V to bring up the selection cursor.
    7 - See a v flashing on my screen instead.
    8 - Make an angry face at Adobe
    9 - Press delete.

    why is this frustrating? Because you taught me a magic mode (the keyboard shortcut) that helps me go faster, and then you break the magic and violate how it works, in effect punishing me for trying to go faster.

    It's breaking a basic rule in design. As David Knell said, this is the straw that makes me not want to use this product. And it's such a simple fix. It makes me complain about you to other people. I don't want to be a user who complains - none of us do. Win over 56 folks to become your fans and fix this please.
