I noticed that after updating to latest version of PS CC (Windows) I can no longer use alt while drawing a standard Lasso selection to alternate between Lasso tool and Polygon Lasso tool when releasing the mouse button.

It seems to still work with Polygon lasso to alternate to freehand (sadly that's super annoying for my workflow)

Reproduce: Use standard Lasso tool, start drawing a selection and hold down alt, lift stylus / stop clicking - it should go into polygon lasso mode until you click again but doesn't.

If you're on Windows 10, do you have WinTab enabled? Have you tried installing the 21.1.1 update that went out early this AM. It has some fixes for the lasso tool.
