After Effects Shortcut Question

Is there a shortcut to go from the text tool to the arrow tool without using the mouse to click on the arrow tool. Typically the default would be 'V' but since it is the text tool it would just type V...

That was on mind last week as well...
Now I think about it:
Did you try typing Alt first?
Usually that enable keyboardbrowsing of the topbar menu.

V, then T (text) and then esc and V again. Always works. Mac or windows.

That's because your text tool is still active. If you go CTRL+ENTER that will save and esc your text box. Then you can hit V and it will change to the arrow tool. Then hit CTRL+T to go back to the text tool.
