Other thing,
When select any tool link line, text, etc ... I can't exit the too by pressing ESC or the arrow.
The only way to exit easily is to open other symbol.

I can reproduce the stuck-tool bug. If this happens, you can exit the tool with the "Exit Tool" command in the right-click-menu. (Note this this bug will be tracked under

Does this still happen on latest master?

When reported happened 4 times in a row. But now i can't make it happen.
Probably is better to close.

Regarding to "Exit Tool" is working in the latest release (Version: 6.0.0-unknown-f7c042a~100~ubuntu18.04.1)
