can only make box shapes - other tools not working?

Am trying to learn the pen tool as it’s the first took in the lessons. No matter what I’ve tried, all that appears is a box / shape tool. I click on the pen tool - nothing changes. Ditto line tool. Am totally confused!

Hey there @peanut2,

Would you mind attaching a screen recording so I can see what is happening from your side while trying to use the Pen Tool? Once I get a better picture of the situation, I’d be happy to help!
