Since version 23.1 the Rotation tool have an issue.
Since ever, the rotation tool is set on one of my tablet's ExpressKeys. Usually it's activated by pressing and holding the key, when I release the key it automatically switches back to whatever other tool I was using before (as it should be). But since the latest update it stays selected if pressed touched ones and I'm forced to manually switch back to another tool (such as the brush for example). I'm a professional illustrator and this is extremely annoying and slows down my workflow a lot.
I already set the rotation tool to another ExpressKey but also there it has the same issue.

Steps: Use the following optional extension (see this kb article for info on optional extensions) in PSUserConfig.txt: sprk <time in milliseconds> The time value above reflects the time for which a key needs to be pressed to enable the spring-loaded featureKeep the time value above to a large value (e.g. 20000 which means that a key needs to be pressed for 20 seconds for spring-loading to activate for it) This change went into 23.0.1 and in recent testing, I found that 100 to 300 works well.

Looks like a timing issue. If you press the key to rotate, tap/click and drag to rotate, release the mouse button or lift the stylus with the rotate key still down, wait and then release the rotate key, it will return to brush. If you do this quickly, it doesn't return and stays with the rotate tool. Still a bug we need to fix.
