I'm using a Macbook and have already tried to use a different mouse, but got the same outcome. I've also tried changing the Game mode and still the same outcome occurs. For some reason, my left click just switches to place. This happens to every type of block as well.

    What else have you tried? Have you accidentally rebound the keys?

Just a guess, but have you rebound your Sneak button from Shift to Control?

In MacOS, Control+click is translated to right-click so, if Control is your sneak button, anytime you're sneaking all your clicks will become right-clicks.


I'm unsure about macbooks and how they work, however may I suggest rebooting your computer, and making sure you are not using any snapshots. If you continue to see this problem, make some backups for your worlds to be on the safe side.
