Restore anchor point long hold to delete anchor points.
Previously, when performing a long press with the direct select tool on an anchor point, it would delete that anchor point. Using the "delete anchor point" button on the floating menu is now the only option, but the long press method is just simpler and saves a lot of effort. A nice way to restore this option is to have it as a feature that you can turn on/off in prefrences.

Please return this feature!
It was an extremely convenient option that no longer exists.
Please restore this anchor point deletion via a long press.. Illustrator for the iPad is pretty much useless without this feature. I constantly am using the pen tool and not having this feature makes the ipad app useless. It angers me even more because I purchased an IPad just for illustrator on the go. It doesn’t help that the pop up menu is never in the right place when you are zoomed in (which big surprise- in the only way I normally edit a path). The latest update doesn’t make the app better, it only made it worse. Please restore the old features.
