Re: Immediate mode actions


Hey Jeff,

I spent some time this morning playing around with the "immediate"
hotkeys in Eeschema and it's better but there is still one annoying
difference from the legacy behavior.  When cancelling (escape key) a
drawing in progress, the drawing is aborted, the current tool is
canceled, and the selection tool is enable.  The legacy behavior was
abort the drawing in progress and keep the current tool enabled.  The
current tool would only be canceled when it was not busy drawing
something.  It's rather cumbersome to have to keep enabling the drawing
tool every time you exit a drawing when you make a mistake.
