Summary

Currently, the Toolbar's selection mode menu shows the rectangular selection mode
by default, which is not the most useful or commonly used selection mode.

This patch makes the Text Selection tool the one that's shown by default, since that's
the kind of selection that's the most useful given the sort of document that Okular
is typically used to view.

Test Plan
  • Delete ~/.config/okularrc and ~/.config/okularpartrc
  • Open Okular
  • See that the selection mode toolbar button shows Text Selection by default:

+1. Text selection is what I want most of the time and having to switch back to it whenever I'm done with the annotation tools is annoying.
