Do any of you Illustrator users (and hotkey addicts) recognize this phenomenon:

Stray v, a and t characters that end up on text labels some times...
(when you have been editing text, and forgotten to unselect the text before changing tools with hotkeys)

I get this alot with illustrator, this was never an issue with Freehand when I was still using it.

I just try to be careful.

Remapping is not exactly a nice thing to do when you're using a computer with more than one person... I still 'fondly' remember the guy who remapped "CTRL-Z" in 3D Studio Max to something else... :angry:
