Hello,

 

I am using InDesign for the first time and I switched from Illustrator. I am on Mac and when I use Illustrator and want to use the Polygon tool, i just force touch on the Rectangle tool and the menu with the Elipse tool and the Polygon tool opens up. This however doesn't work in InDesign. Is that a bug or a feature?

 

I know I can access the menu by Control Clicking the Rectangle tool or I can cicle through it by Option Clicking, however the Force Touch way is much more convinient... Is there a way to make it work? 

 

Thanks!

A long press still works for me. Mac 11.2.2 InDesign 16.1   You might try rebuilding preferences/cache. https://www.rockymountaintraining.com/adobe-indesign-rebuilding-preferences-cache/   ~Barb
