When using the smart tool, can we have the option to reverse top and bottom half function?  I tend to click the top half when wanting to “select” an item, not wanting the range tool.

Couldn't agree more! The 'intelligent' range tool can be very intrusive. Personally, I'd love an option to switch it off completely! One answer is to have a finger permanently postioned over the number '1', so you can switch back to the arrow quickly.

That little bracket to the left of the selection/pointer tool decouples the smart tool function, that might be more up your alley.  I like the smart tool concept but would prefer selecting an item from the top half.
