Cant use my tools in a multiplayer server.

There are some servers that i cant use my tools in. it shows all the sub-categories but when i click on them to drop the menu down nothing happens. Im on a mac and i know other people who have mac have this problem. so is there a way to fix this?

thanks.

Are you sure it’s not just a tool you have locally but isn’t installed on the server?

its all the tools. even the ones that come with gmod.
