comment Word describing “Nothing Changed”
@WillHunting "no change" would be the same issue. When printing clinical letters for the practices, the verbiage is usually stated "and no changes occurred in the swelling in the ankle", but for the selected drawing tool, calling it "no change" or "nothing changed" just looks like an odd tool name.

So tempting to edit your answer and change "ain't" to "isn't". :-)
