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.

I also have found the "selection" and "direct selection" tool icons in the 2022 version of InDesign to be confusing as their appearance is no longer consistent with the look of the same icons in other CC apps. Please see the image below to compare the tool icons in the 2022 versions of InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop with each user interface being set to the Medium Dark setting. Is it possible to have the "selection" and "direct selection" tool icons returned to their state as they were in previous versions of InDesign to match the appearance of the same tool icons in other CC apps?Anonymous supported this idea ·
