Default select tool instead of hand

in every Miro board I create, the hand tool (V) is the default instead of the select tool (pointer) which causes great and unnecessary confusion for participants, especially new users. 

Can I force the boards  to default to the select tool? Thanks in advance, Rich

Ah, thanks Robert, I thought so.

@Rich Nadworny - Unfortunately the default behaviour when entering any board (new or existing) is for the cursor to be in pan/move mode. You will have to manually change to Select (V) mode. This can be quickly done using the V or H hotkey.

I would suggest that you add your comments/vote to this Wish List Idea:

Or you can create your own Wish List category by following the guidelines here: Wish List: Everything You Need to Know.

If you do create a Wish List Idea post, I would also recommend that you post a link to it back here, so that future readers of this post can quickly get to and vote for your Idea.
