Default tool

Suddenly my select tool is no longer the default when I open the program. Instead, it’s the brush tool which is a nuisance. Is there a way to change the settings or preferences to make the select tool the default? Thanks.

I double-checked this functionality and it’s always been this way. There are some things that are saved in the user preferences, and the last selected tool is not one of those things. We can keep this in mind as a feature request for future versions of the software.
