turn tools loose??

a friend asked this question which I couldn't answer since I haven't really used the tools so far.

"I hate to ask such a dumb question on a public list, but I still can't figure out how to get a tool to turn loose! I pick up, for example, the rotator tool. I'm finished rotating, but I can't put the tool down."

Any answers????

What I usually do is select the "Select rectangular regions" tool which is the first tool in the upper left-hand corner of the toolbox. This is the default tool that is selected when you first start gimp, unless you configure gimp otherwise. :)

Peace....

I used to be puzzled by this, too, but I have discovered anything I want to do that doesn't involved another tool, I can do while I still have that tool. Like print. Sometimes I just select another tool, like "move". I've gotten used to it.
