Ok, what I am finding annoying is the cursor next to the lasso tool. Please tell me that this is going to go away when CS6 is released. It is very annoying to try and make a selection when you have to look at the cursor but know that the lasso is where the selection will land.
Sure, see below. I assumed it was an intentional design decision, but maybe not.
I much prefer the CS5 version as the lasso icon acts as both an identifier and the actual cursor. Adding the arrow causes a visual struggle between the tip of the arrow and the tip of the cursor, in terms of the origin point of the selection. Of course, like anything, I'm sure my eye will get used to it over time, but I'm not sure why the change was needed in the first place.
