Hi Guys and Gals,
I'm having difficulty with a simple action I'd like help with if it can be done. I have an action that just creates a new blank layer, resets swatches to black and white and then grabs a brush that I created and places it as a watermark in the corner of an image. My problem is, when the action ends, the Brush Tool is still selected and I would like the Move Tool to be selected. I have CC2020. All I need to know is how to have the move tool selected instead of the brush tool when the action ends. Please help if possible. Cheers.

If you really need the move tool selected, you can use this tiny script (save as *.jsx - put it in your scripts folder of photoshop an add it to you action)...
JavaScript:
#target Photoshop
var c = stringIDToTypeID;
(r = new ActionReference()).putClass(c('moveTool'));
(d = new ActionDescriptor()).putReference(c('target'), r);
executeAction(c('select'), d, DialogModes.NO)
