@Marcus RowellI have the same problem. 2x tenancies I've checked so far. The new details pane now shows an icon that corresponds to the column type, there's a button to edit the list of columns in the form and Content Type is gone. Also with the Edit all form, it's gone too.
I've noticed for some time that when you click Show/hide columns in the header of a modern library, Content Type is not available as a choice, you have to use the classic Edit view to show it. Now it seems they've extended that to the choice of columns in the details pane.
This is immensely frustrating. I have customers asking me about it and there seems not to be a way to edit the content type of a file in a modern library any more without convoluted workarounds like Power Automate.

@Marcus Rowell The library I customised the edit form for now has the Content Type reappear in the details pane, but the other sites (in another tenancy) do not yet have that. I wonder if the process of doing that changed something.
The form was already customised in Power Apps but it didn't have the Content Type data card on the form, so I added that then tested it by changing a file's content type. In the past I have tried editing/viewing content type in PowerApps but it never worked. It does now, so something big has changed on the back-end.

@Marcus Rowell , Same issue here. I've checked 2 tenants on different geo locations (US, Canada).
No content type in the info panel if library support multiple content types.
Probably not much QA testing was done before deploying. I'm really not impressed of QA testing with features deployment in SharePoint online...

We are currently investigating this behavior

@Bruno Aleixo Thank you so much for the fast fix. I can confirm the issue is now resolved on all my tenants.
No idea how you rolled that out to all of production in 6 hours. You surely deserve some kind of super hero of the day award.

@Bruno Aleixo I can confirm that the Content Type drop down is back (Australia East). However, I have reports from end users (with Contribute rights) that when they change the content type it's not saving. I need confirm this but I thought I'd mention that here.

@Bruno Aleixo I have a video that exhibits the behaviour but it's not OK to publish publicly because it shows some private customer information. I have confirmed and can replicate the problem myself: In a library with content types enabled and document sets in use, within different document sets various content types can't be selected (technically they can, it saves then quickly changes back to the previous value with no error message).
Not all content types are affected, some will save, some will revert, and in different doc sets of the same type within the same library, different content types are affected. However, within a single doc set, all files will revert when changing to the same set of seemingly random content types.
It's really bizarre, and it only started happening at the time of this update.

@williampage in theory the fix should not had a influence on the behavior you describ on docset given it was a visual issue. My recommendation is to raise a support ticket for that issue so we can further investigate that scenario.

HI @Bruno Aleixo, is there any out of the box way we can hide this content type selector. We don't want the users to modify the content type nor the Document ID (you are able to change the Document ID (link to a document) if you choose documents in a bulk) using the details pane. Thanks!
