She hopes this tip’s title makes sense. The idea is that you select some text and then hit Escape. Now where do you want the cursor to go?

If you want it to stay where it is, that’s the default behavior. But if you want it to jump to the beginning of the selection (that is, the selection anchor), go to Tools–Options–Text Editor–General and check Go To Selection Anchor After Escape.

Happy Programming! =)
