The latest release is 21.0.0. I got it by opening the Creative cloud app and clicking on "Check for updates." Some of the new features are there, the Object selection tool is not.

Thanks, that worked! But I didn't restore the toolbar, just dragged the object selection tool to the toolbar and applied.

I tried that and it didn't work on my machine. I still have no object selection tool anywhere on my toolbar, even after restoring it to defaults as it says here.

v21.0.0

resetting defaults didn't work. but with the window edit - tools, I could see the new tool at the bottom on the right and was able to drag it over to the left side and it showed up then. so problem solved, just not by the "solution" listed here.

my mistake, it's "edit" from the top toolbar menu, then "toolbars" not "tools", then a new window pops up that shows all the tools available in two panels. left side which is what's active, and right side which are the ones available but not active.Screenshot 2019-11-14 18.57.09.png

Thanks for your response. Unfortunately I have no inactive tools on the right and refresh defaults does nothing!

Hey

Is there anyone else here who is not getting the Object Selection Tool to show up in their toolbar?

I can't seem to find it anywhere, and it's definitely not under the selection-tool options in the toolbar where it's supposed to be.

When I found out about the newest update with 2020 I was SO excited- installed it and am working my way through it, but so far it's just disappointing me. The 'Select Object Tool' I was looking forward to trying is absent plus it seems like they removed the Layers Type preview that had introduced in 2019 (which I adored). Any ideas?

Can you explain what you see missing on the type layers. I can still double click with teh move tool to edit text.

Ha ha! That fixed it- bless you! Thank you!!

On the Type layers, I misspoke- I should have said the blending modes for the layers- the preview feature they added in 2019 seems to be gone. 
TBH I'm always blown away by how much they do with each update and I was just disappointed on these two things (now one, thanks to Dave's wisdom.)  So much love for Adobe

Hi

Layer blending mode previews is working here, whether I go up and down the list with a mouse or just use a scroll wheel in the layer panel box

 

If you are not seeing them, try a preference reset

Dave, you're two for two- I went into preferences and while I didn't change anything, it worked after opening it. I award you 5 karma points and you have my thanks!

Thanks, Dave, for showing me how to find the missing Object Selection Tool!!  I'm glad I only five minutes searching online for an answer before logging in to the Adobe Support Community.  😄

 

Some time ago, I went through my Application Menu bar and hid a lot of the menu options, to make the menus less crowded and the commands I frequently use quicker to spot.  Today's conundrum has me wondering if there may be new menu options from v. 2020 that won't appear if I don't reset the menus. Do you know if this is so?
