Just upgraded to CC 2019 and After Effects has been affected by the home button like almost every other program. I was able to remove it from Photoshop, but is there a way to remove it from After Effects? It's right where I'm used to clicking for the select tool and I hit it instead every time. It just needs to go away.

You should really try to get in the habit of using the keyboard shortcuts to navigate the toolbar. Over the course of the year it will probably save you a couple of days. The selection tool is the V.

I agree but when you are using the text tool there is no way that I know of to switch to the selector.

You can select other tools when you're using the text tool. You just have to use the Command/Control button. I found this page that could help.

After Effects keyboard shortcuts reference

Actually Dave - thinking about this, you've got the priorities all wrong. By the time we get to CC 2020 the selection tool will be just to the right of the cat...

The automatic cat video tool (powered by Sensei™) is amazing. Don't even need to own a cat

Exactly. In Photoshop, you can turn it off. In Illustrator, it's in an innocuous place. It's only in After Effects that I have a real issue with it. I usually do keyboard shortcuts when I can, but in AE, it's a key combination (Command + key) instead of just the key itself, like in Photoshop, unless they've changed it on me.

Thank you for mentioning this! I have been frustrated all day clicking in the wrong place for the selector tool.

What a terrible freaking idea to place that there when it serves very little purpose.
