Inconsistent "finalize" between Text and Line tool

Bug #1324601 reported by grofaty

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Pinta daily PPA on Ubuntu 14.04:
1. Text tool and write some text. To finalize the text press <ESC> key.
2. Click on Line/Curve icon, draw line. To finalize the line/curve press <Enter> key.

Why are there used two different "finalize" keys?

Natural to me is pressing <ESC> key to escape from something that has been embed (like text) or selected (like line).

I suggest to meka <ESC> Line/Curve finalize tool.

Now after Andrew in GSoC-2014 added the same features to Rectangle, Rounded Rectangle and Ellipse it is also the same inconsistency like with Line/Curve.

I would also expect that Rectangle Select, Ellipse Select and Lasso Select could be deselected with <Esc> key, but it looks like shortcut to deselect is Shift+Ctrl+A. This is maybe more of the feature then bug... but inconsistency between tools to do the same think escape from some tool. There may be different actions technically speaking but from end-user perspective they want to escape the tool they are using.

This should be for Pinta 1.7, since we'll need to change a bunch of strings

Retested and problem still present in 1.7+r1113-202007280014~ubuntu18.04.1.

I think we can postpone this problem to post 1.7 release.
