Escape key no longer working to exit out of text box

This has been causing major hiccups in my designing. I design with type a lot as a branding & packaging designer and this makes me want to scream.

 

I keep hitting esc to get out of the text box/type tool, and then v to switch to select tool, and it. is. not. working. And it's leaving me with a lot of 'v's throughout my txt boxes and it's causing me to have spelling erros on client work that I don't catch because I'm so used to this.
Plus it is slowing me down so much as this was a shortcut I CONSTANTLY use.

 

WHY did this change? HOW Can I change it back? I will do anything for this to come back.

Have you tried resetting your preferences? What system are you on? It works for me on Windows, Illustrator v25.3

Thanks -  I reset my keyboard increment preferences that I found in another forum and it helped, so I assume resetting the preferences is really what would help too. Thank you so much!
