I cannot deselect all in Gimp 2.8 - I tried all the approaches given in another post, and none worked.
This is a very simple thing, usually - all the other functions in Gimp seem to follow normal rules, more or less (used to use Photoshop, just downloaded and playing with GIMP). I hope there is a simple answer to this one.
Thank you. - Bill
P.S. If it is relevant, yes, I do want to get rid of the "marching ants."
