    Acrobat DC Pro--can I make select tool default??

    ISBN4321 Level 1

      Hi there. I use Acrobat for heavy editing purposes and the random HAND TOOL as default is driving me nuts. Is there any way to set the select tool as default? I've seen several articles on how to do this in Reader, but none for Acrobat Pro DC. I am using Windows 10. I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC.


      I have already done the folllowing under preferences:


      * checked "Always display the keyboard selection cursor"



      * Unchecked all the "Make Hand Tool..." and "Make Select tool..." options.



      * Checked "Restore last settings when reopening documents"


      In the registry, I have this:

      Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\DC\Selection


      NADA. Every time I open a new doc, it's the hand tool. And after each change of tool, it goes back to HAND TOOL. I NEVER USE HAND TOOL. Please help! THANK YOU!!!!!
