I love Affinity (+ V1.7) ... but I click on Polygonal and get the magnetic tool

Recommended Posts

Basically the title says it all, I go to the "Freehand Selection Tool",  then up the the "Type", up top, select "Polygonal",  but instead of what I expect,  get the Magnetic Tool?  Tried several times

because I thought it must be me ........... but not me!  Am sure it will be fixed fairly soon.

On Mac it works fine, click on polygonal, get polygonal. others function as expected.

What happens if you click on the magnet?

Also, bear in mind if you use the shift key in Polygonal mode it automatically switches to magnetic mode
