ESC key does not work (highlightings are not removed, tool windows are not
deactivated, selection is not reset, etc).
This issue arises if all of the following conditions are met:
are not affected).
Studio at some moment in the past (this includes all of the public v5 nightlies
up until now).
R# is installed.
Those versions of R# were intercepting ESC aggressively, which interfered
with normal Visual Studio functioning. Now that this has been changed, neither
VS nor new R# can see ESC anymore until the keybindings are reverted.
then reapply R# shortcuts (either with installer repair or ReSharper > Options
Environment > Visual Studio Integration > Apply).
for ESC manually; probably, the commands are Window.ActivateDocumentWindow
in Global scope and Edit.SelectionCancel in Text Editor scope.
This is a one-time fix, unless older builds are installed again, of course.
The v5 release build will not cause this kind of problems as well.
Sorry for inconvenience.
