Make ability to create Dead (not Live) shapes
I don't always need LIVE shapes. They have different controls, different treat of Control panel, they bite off Transform palette. Sometimes I just need rectangular path, as it was before, not Rectangle. Now I have to use Plain rectangle plugin on common basis, rebound to M hotkey.
I would like to use them if not a bug with Ctrl+Enter in Width/Height fields, while proportion constraint is off (Live shapes don't constraint it with Ctrl+Enter, as everybody else do, — I'm surprised I haven't reported it yet.)
Mark, there is an easy way to convert a live shape into 'dead' one, but with a separate 'Expand' command. I just have too much Expand commands :)

The irritation for me is not being able to reset the bounding box, which is what I need to make certain transformations. To kill it, I have to manually edit a vertex which I can’t even automate. So yeah.
I don't personally mind that it's created as a live shape - as long as I have a quick and easy way to change it back to regular path behaviour.
