I see the same and I consider this a bug. When a selected object changes it
should trigger SelectedObjectChanged, no matter why it changed.

I see the same for the new subscription model, ideSelectedObjectChanged does
not trigger when changing from edit to browse tool, but ideToolChanged does.

put this into a card script and put 1 field on the card
on openCard
end openCard

on subscribeCardToMessage
   ideSubscribe "ideSelectedObjectChanged"
   ideSubscribe "ideToolChanged"
end subscribeCardToMessage

on ideToolChanged
   put "toolChanged" && the milliseconds into field 1
end ideToolChanged

on ideSelectedObjectChanged
   put "selectedObjectchanged" && the milliseconds into field 1
end ideSelectedObjectChanged

Kind regards
