I can use my mouse to open the ··· settings menu but when I press the on-screen button with my Surface Pen it doesn't activate. The account and feedback buttons both work as expected.

I have a similar issue, but it's with touch, not pen. I have a touch screen with no pen input capability, and I am unable to open the menu or do several other functions by touch. This is an 8" tablet, and I have to haul out a mouse when using Edge Canary right now, which kind of defeats the purpose of having the small tablet.

When typing in the address bar, I am unable to tap a suggested completion. Instead of selecting that completion, it will just go to what I have typed so far, which is still incomplete.
I can't remember what else at the moment. I was late getting somewhere and didn't have time to write it down. As I rediscover, if I rediscover before fixed, I'll put the bug report in through the app's feedback as I did the other.
Interesting, which other functions don't work for you by using touch?

I agree...on a 10" tablet with touch in tablet mode I can not get to the "..." menu.
I can get to ">" more favorites and the smiley feedback button.
I have to use the virtual touchpad (not a physical mouse) to get it to work.

I have found a workaround to allow me to access my favorites and most other items that one would access regularly through that 3-dot menu.
I installed a plug-in from the Chrome store called Quick Bookmarks Menu. Right-click or long-press on the icon in the toolbar to set it up.
I set the following:
1. Open Bookmarks in: New Tab (Other options are "current tab" and "background.)
2. Folder Hover Enter: Off (can be set from slow to fast, which is for opening the folders for hovering with the mouse. For pen or touch, it should be off.)
Once that's done, set up the following bookmarks in a new bookmarks folder called "Edge Menu Items."
I added the following bookmarks:
edge://settings/help (About Microsoft Edge)
The last one helps me make sure I'm on the latest build. This has made Edge Canary usable for me. Hope it helps someone else.

Thanks for the tip on the virtual touch-pad. I forgot about that, and it's sitting in the taskbar waiting on me to use it. Cumbersome though, but helps in a pinch.
I've not been using the favorites toolbar, because on an 8" screen I need all the real estate I can get. You might want to check my solution I posted above. Hope it helps. I set up a series of favorites to let me access what I need under that menu.
Will still need to use the virtual touchpad when I need to install an app, but those are, for the most part, already set up.

I can confirm I have the same issue on the dev build 126.96.36.199, on my Surface Pro 4.
The three-dot menu is highlighted when tapped with the Surface Pen, but doesn't open. With the touch screen, the three-dot menu does not react at all.
However, it seems fixed in canary build 188.8.131.52.
