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.

This resolution is incorrect and the issue needs more attention. I am now using the key commands instead of choosing the selection tools from the toolbar to eliminate the confusion. No UI designer would recommend different icons for the same tool - regardless of chosen theme. Please fix this issue before it gets passed on to the next update.Brian Notz supported this idea ·
