Add Cut At / Connect / Remove Selected Anchor Points commands to 'Object > Path' menu
In Control panel we have three buttons for a point partial selection:
Remove selected anchor points.
Does the same as a menu command Object > Path > Remove Anchor Points, and this command can have a hotkey assigned to
Connect selected end points.
Does the same as a menu command Object > Path > Join, and has a default hotkey. Why Ai uses both 'Join' and 'connect' for the same operation, and also has 'Join' tool, which does a pretty different thing — is an UX mystery.
Cut path at selected anchor points.
There is NO a menu command for that, and this button can NOT have a hotkey or written into an action (which is a bad workaround anyway, because an action which has only one operation is an excuse for not having an ability to assign a hotkey to the command directly, like with scripts).
We need these as hotkeys.
We need all the hotkeys — https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657/suggestions/31609237
It would be great if Direct Selection's "Convert/Remove/Connect and Cut Anchor points" functions could be assigned a shortcut, since with tools dedicated for exactly that ("Convert Anchor Point" or "Remove Anchor Point") you can't affect multiple selected anchor points AT ONCE as you can with those in the Direct Selection Tool.
I think it would streamline the drawing workflow quite a bit.
