It would be helpful to be able to toggle the Area tool "Record Mode" from Point to Point to Box with a key stroke.
The best place to request a new feature would be from feature request right in the Help tab. If a lot of people are requesting the same feature, development usually looks at implementing that feature.
Has this been solved?
How do you toggle between Point 2 Point and Box?
To my knowledge that feature has not been added. The only way to toggle is to click on the "record mode:Point to Point" and change it to "box" mode at the bottom of the program.
