?Add? Tool

Question

I?d like to have an Add tool to complement the Clip tool in the same way the Add Surface command complements the Clip Surface command. I could certainly put this to use often.

Have you tried "Compose"?? It will take any number of line, or poly segments and (as long as their ends are exactly coincident) transform them into one object...

The value in what I'm requesting is in being able to, for instance, add a rectangular area to an existing object by simply two clicks. Or one I often use is to fill in an area to make an L-shape into a rectanglular shape. Think how much easier it is to use the Clip Tool than to draw an object and then Clip Surface. The mouse clicks add up.

Set a keyboard shortcut for Add Surface, that's what I do. Not meaning to undermine your wish.

It would actually be better if it weren't a new tool, but rather a keyboard modifier such as Shift incorporated into an existing tool (Clip in this case) to activate the Add function.....

Ray? I have and use a keyboard shortcut, but Add Surface isn't exactly what I want. I don't want to change to the 2D Selection Tool and then select both objects in order to use it. Again, think about how easy the Clip Tool is to use and count the actions.

Kevin? Decision Point: New tool for some continuity with existing interface or Modifier key for streamlined interface ----- I think I like the Modifier key.
