Actomyosin contractility is the major force-generating machinery that shapes cells and tissues during morphogenesis. New evidence from Drosophila demonstrates that these forces are spatially organized by a combination of biochemical and mechanical signals that provide dynamic feedback in a complex cellular environment.
