    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.

    RESOLVED???? Are you kidding me? Your explanation is as tone deaf to users as your virtue signaling "master" pages change, and you forcing users to save files in Adobe Cloud to use your collaborative features. It really reminds me of when the Photoshop team changed the transform tool to proportionally constrain by default instead of using the shift key when resizing (like every other Adobe program/version since it's beginning). Users hated it and they had to add a "Legacy" option in the preferences, but it should have never been changed in the first place. You guys are part of the Adobe family, and when you decide to make a change without considering how inconsistent it is with other programs in the suite or how experienced users have used the tools for years upon years, it shows how little you consider ACTUAL users in your UX design. It's like you guys are just making changes to say that you did something in this release. These little cosmetic and foundational tool changes don't need tweaking. Please just work on some new features and improve the stability of what you have, but these nonsensical changes are frustrating to your long time users.
