    ID 2022 is showing the correct behavior for the Selection and Direct Selection Tools in all color themes. Compare the Dark Theme icons with the Light theme icons to know the difference.
    So basically, now the “Filled/Solid” tool is the Selection Tool and the “Hollow” tool is the Direct Selection Tool.
    As you can see, in the Dark/Medium Dark mode, the Selection Tool is shown as Filled and the Direct Selection Tool is shown as Hollow – which is the same as in the Light theme.
    The earlier versions of InDesign were showing it incorrectly.

    Thank you for your quick reply!

    Thanks to your explaination, I understand what you aimed to achieve, but...
    -the mouse pointers still are filled black or filled white (which is inverse to how the buttons are shown in dark/medium dark theme) and not "filled" and "hollow". No other two tools use the same icon, one dark/filled, one light/hollow. Therefore, other tools' buttons and pointers being inversed doesn't cause confusion.
    -Illustrator, belonging to the same product family, still displays both tool buttons the way they used to be, amplifying the inconsistency when working with both.

    In my experience, selection/direct selection are often referred to as "black arrow" and "white arrow", because that is what they are. Only now the buttons don't match ^^
