|Esc (see Note)||Alt+S, L||Selection -> Clear Selection|
The Clear Selection command deselects all selected entities or regions.
Note: For some drawing commands, the Esc key will remove the last point that was set instead of clearing the selection. Also, in Image Mode, a Selection tool must be currently active for Esc to clear the selection (however, you may run the command from the menu regardless of whether a selection tool is active or not).
